Book Description
Tracing the history of the concepts of civility and civilisation, 'Civilizing Emotions' chooses a global perspective and highlights the role of civility and civilisation in the creation of a new and hierarchised global order in the era of high imperialism and its entanglements, focusing on the developments in a number of well-chosen European and Asian countries. Emotions were at the core of the practices linked to the political project of the civilising process. 'Civilizing Emotions' brings out the role of emotions as an object of the civilising process.
