9780415104166: Norbert Elias (Key Sociologists)

This book locates Elias's work clearly within the development of sociology and also against the background of current debates.
Between the 1930s and the 1980s he developed a unique approach to social theory which is now beginning to take root in contemporary social research and theory. Since the translation of his work into English began to accelerate in the 1980s, a growing number of books and articles on topics including health, sexuality, crime, national and ethnic identity, femininity and globalization, in a variety of disciplines, make positive reference to Elias as an authority on the history of emotions, identity, violence, the body and state formation.

From the Back Cover:

Norbert Elias is one of the few twentieth-century sociologists recognized as ranking among the truly great and classical social thinkers.His most influential books, The Court Society and The Civilizing Process, are acclaimed as modern classics in a wide range of social scientific disciplines, and his uniaue approach to social theory is increasingly drawn upon as a vital contribution to debates within a growing range of fields, including state formation, globalization, sexualitym gender, health, crime, violence, organizational theory, and national and ethnic identity. Robert van Krieken's lucid book provides a concise and comprehensive criticial guide which locates Elias's work clearly within both the historical devbelopment of sociology and contemporary debates, and identifies his contribution to the future directions of social theory and research.

'Robert van Krieken has written the nest available brief introduction to the work of Norbert Elias. It offers an excellent entree into the work of this increasingly important social theorist'.George Ritzer, University of Maryland.

'Robert van Krieken's new book will be the indispensable concise guide to the whole corpus of Elias's sociological work'. Stephen Mennell, University College Dublin.

'It's beautifully done, clear and crisp, and at time moving'. R.W. Connell, University of Sydney.

'A gem of a book'. Eric Dunning, University of Leicester.
