"Without doubt the most important piece of historical sociology since Max Weber." "Richard Sennett, London School of Economics".
"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 a Max Weber ... One realises 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"
""The Civilizing Process" is remarkable: eclectic, insightful and constantly surprising." "Times Higher Education Supplement"Reseña del editor:
The Civilizing Process stands out as Norbert Elias' greatest work, tracing the 'civilizing' of manners and personality in Western Europe since the Middle Ages, and showing how this was related to the formation of states and the monopolization of power within them. It comprises the two volumes originally published in English as The History of Manners and State Formation and Civilization, now, in a single volume, the book is restored to its original format and made available world-wide to a new generation of readers. In this new edition, the original text is extensively revised, corrected, and updated. The Revised Edition reveals anew and afresh the greatness of Elias' masterpiece.
