Inwardly as well as externally, the old university constitution has become fictitious. During the distress of the defensive wars in 1068 under Wang An Shi, they enjoyed a short-lived and full triumph. If we com-pare the classificatory schema of Vierkandt or von Wiese with that of Tonnies in terms of their usefulness in opening up new lines of thought and inquiry, it is quite clear that the influence of Tonnies has been far more fruitful.

About half the lectures focus on models of collective action, power, and exchange as developed by Coleman, Bonacich, Marsden, and Yamaguchi.

The upper-class has a certain life style in which individuals are careful to socialize only with the "right crowd." Sociology of literature, film, and art is a subset of the sociology of culture.
