Syllabi generally contain the following information: instructor and university, course overview, schedule of class topics and assignments, and a reading list. Section 3 contains the Oxford University reading list and examination in political sociology. The reading list includes over 250 citations listed under categories of introductory and general texts, classical texts and commentaries, political power, social bases of political conflict and party competition, relations between state and society, revolutions, and political attitudes.
