All manners of food : eating and taste in England and France from the Middle Ages to the present by Stephen Mennell( Book )

57 editions published between 1985 and 2003 in 7 languages and held by 1,661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eating and taste have always been central to French and English culture and yet the history of food and of our attitudes to it has rarely been afforded any thorough analysis. Stephen Mennell's book addresses food, eating, taste and cooking as crucial and changing signs of our cultural and historical development ... All Manners of Food examines methods of cooking, the history of writing about food and the history of the education of our palates. It reveals the extent to which we are trained to like and to dislike, and shows that foods undergo changes in popularity as dramatic as changes in dress, dynasty or politics."--Jacket

The result is a consistent and stimulating look at one of sociology's founding thinkers."--Jacket

The American civilizing process by Stephen Mennell( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 9/11, the American government has presumed to speak and act in the name of "civilization". But isthat how the rest of the world sees it? And if not, why not? Stephen Mennell leads up to such contemporary questions through a careful study of the whole span of American development, from the first settlers to the American Empire. He takes a novel approach, analysing the USA's experience in the light of Norbert Elias's theory of civilizing (and decivilizing) processes. Drawing comparisons between the USA and other countries of the world, the topics discussed include: a- American manners and lifestyles; b- violence in American society; c- the impact of markets on American social character; d- American expansion, from the frontier to empire; e- the curse of the American Dream' and increasing inequality; and f- the religiosity of American life. -- Back cover

Drawn largely from unpublished manuscripts, this compilation illustrates Norbert Elias' theory that the emergence of the professional naval officer in Great Britain was related both to the necessities of naval warfare and to the structure of society on land.

Norbert Elias and figurational research : processual thinking in sociology( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Norbert Elias has been increasingly recognised as one of the most important sociologists of the twentieth century and, moreover, one whose writings retain their significance and relevance for the twenty-first century. Although there are some important parts of the globe - most notably the USA - where sociologists still know relatively little about him, there are now energetic research networks using his ideas in every continent. This monograph provides a unique perspective on Elias's thought. It includes a comprehensive background to his writing, an analysis of its theoretical and substantive influence upon the sociological tradition, an exploration of the international dimensions and multi-disciplinary aspects of his work, and a selection of some of the most exciting empirical research that is presently being conducted using what has become known as 'figurational sociology'.--Résumé de l'éditeur
