Introduction

This unit is designed as an introduction to the academic study of the concept of rules, but will also serve as an introduction to a variety of different writing styles that are used in the academic world. It will challenge you to think about why some statements are rules and some are not, and what it is that distinguishes rules from habits and customs. It also looks at more formal rules and how such rules are applied and enforced. Rules shape our lives because they set out what we may and may

Equally prepared for life? How 15-year old boys and girls perform in school
This report uses data from the OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) to explore gender differences in educational experiences. Student background, attitudes and characteristics are all seen to influence performance. Despite the fact that girls tend to outperform boys in school, boys are more likely to go on to earn more and hold positions of political and economic power. The authors argue that, if government policies are to aim for parity, education could be key. The rep

1 Preface

Political theorists – classic writers such as Hobbes and Rousseau but contemporary ones too – have often assumed a neat fit between this government and that territory and its population, as if the fit between the two were somehow natural or timeless. Reality is always messier than that, of course. Countries, or nation-states, are in part constructed entities or communities – political units that are consciously demarcated and separated from others. As Guibernau comments,
