About this book

Reviews

"Norbert Elias and Social Theory is a very welcome addition to the Elias collection, not least because the main aim of this volume is to demystify the work of Elias and to enable readers to better understand and assess his contribution to the discipline. As such, this book looks set to make a positive contribution to Elias's legacy and to make his work more accessible to a broader range of researchers and academics." - British Journal of Sociology of Education

'Norbert Elias was one of the most important and wide-ranging sociological theorists of the twentieth century. But he was much more than a mere 'theorist' his work was always grounded in empirical research. That is why, in the twenty-first century, there is a thriving global research tradition using his ideas to understand the world today and where it is going. This edited volume brings together contributions from younger researchers working in Elias's footsteps on four continents, and in doing so paves the way for the continuation of a vibrant and essential tradition.' - Stephen Mennell, General Editor, the Collected Works of Norbert Elias

'This superbly organized collection of essays provides a long overdue systematic comparison between the work of Norbert Elias and that of other major social thinkers of the classical and contemporary eras. The wide-ranging discussions presented herein will no doubt prove indispensable for scholars and students of sociological theory. In Norbert Elias and Social Theory, Elias's work is subjected to a series of rigorous critical and comparative analyses which, when taken together, clearly consolidate his status as one of the most important social scientists of the twentieth century, and one whose work retains an enduring relevance and significance to this day. A must-read.' Jason Hughes, Professor, Department of Sociology, University of Leicester, UK
