These essays in Sociology and Politics (and course
notes) could come in handy for those doing Part II SPS at Cambridge
in particular, but should make interesting reading for others.
The rating refers to how good I think the essay
is (+++=best, +=worst).
PLAGIARISM: I have recently been contacted by a university lecturer informing me about a case against one of his students who was accused of plagiarism (presenting the work of someone else as their own without attribution), because they had copied essays from my website. Plagiarism is a form of academic fraud, and universities take it very seriously indeed. Please, for your own sake, don't copy these essays. They are intended to give you some ideas and suggest some further reading; by copying them you betray the trust I've placed in you as a user of this website.
DISCLAIMER: The Cambridge essay is effectively
exam practice, rather than a journalistic article or a genuine
academic viewpoint. As such, I don't necessarily agree with everything
I've written below...
