Product Overview

Elias effectively founded the modern sociology of sport in collaboration with Eric Dunning in the 1960s and 1970s. They argue that in highly constrained, ''civilized'' societies, sports are to be understood not in terms of ''relaxation'' but rather of the need for pleasurable excitement and its pleasurable resolution. Volume 7 in University College Dublin''s Collected Works of Norbert Elias series.
