Reviews

"After Norbert Elias and Social Theory, François Dépelteau and Tatiana Savoia Landini continue their beautiful effort to diffuse the thought of Norbert Elias by showing its actuality with Norbert Elias and Empirical Research. With his figurational and processual sociology, the German sociologist refused the separation between the historical, the psychological, and the social, and invited the researchers not to abandon empirical inquiry. These messages have been perfectly heard by the researchers who contributed to this book." Bernard Lahire, Professor of Sociology, Ecole Normale Supérieure Lettres et Sciences Humaines, France

"This book provides an original and insightful collection of theoretically informed empirical essays using the work of Elias. It is strongly recommended." - Steven Loyal, Senior Lecturer, School of Sociology, University College Dublin, Ireland
