Norbert Elias (1897–1990) is recognised as one of the greatest sociologists of the twentieth century. His works (some originally written in English and some in German) extend the theory of civilising processes in major contributions to the historical understanding of the growth of knowledge and the sciences, of sport and leisure, of art and literature, and of the interweaving of biological evolution with psychological and social developments over the whole span of human society.

UCD Press, on behalf of the Norbert Elias Foundation, Amsterdam, is publishing the works of Elias in new scholarly editions, including much material not previously published in English.
