" 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.
