Norbert Elias: Publications in Portuguese

 

1980, Introdução à sociologia. Espaço da sociologia. (Portugal, Lisboa: Edições 70) [Translation from German by Maria Luísa Ribeiro Ferreira of Was ist Soziologie? (München: Juventa Verlag, 1970). For some reason, until the fourth Portuguese edition of 2008 the English translation is indicated in all Portuguese editions as the edition on which the translation is based. In the 2008 edition, however, the German title is indicated as the original title. In all probability all editions are the translations of the German edition, although, they also contain the foreword to the English edition (London: Hutchinson, 1978) by Reinhard Bendix.]
