Research interests

My interests are primarily threefold and inter-related:

  • Sociological theory, especially the functional sociology and theory of civilizing processes of Norbert Elias and its place within the wider field of classical and modern sociology;
  • The sociology of sport and leisure;
  • Problems of violence and civilization, especially sports-related violence, including football hooliganism, and the use of Elias's theory in understanding the Holocaust and genocide more generally. I am currently writing books on Elias, the development of soccer, and the Holocaust and civilization.
