Review:

"Without doubt the most important piece of historical sociology since Weber." Richard Sennett

"A modern classic of the first order." Lewis Coser

"Elias has all the boldness and sureness of touch of the old masters, of whom he is perhaps the last. Reading his pages one again and again makes the mental note that this or that point is worthy of Max Weber ... One realizes from a book like this that serious sociology must remain dependent on the insightful interpretation of history of just the kind that Elias provides." Bryan Wilson


"The most remarkable recent attempt to contain the social and the individual within a unified scheme of sociological analysis." Philip Abrams

From the Back Cover:

The Civilizing Process stands as Norbert Elias′s greatest work, tracing the "civilizing" of manners and personality in Western Europe since the late Middle Ages, and showing how this was related to the formation of states and the monopolization of power within them. This single–volume edition restores the book to its original format, making it available worldwide for a new generation of readers.

The Revised Edition, takes the original version of the combined classic texts The History of Manners and State Formation and Civilization and addresses the problems found in the first edition through updating, revising, and correcting. The revised version is simply perfecting what was already a masterpiece.
