I've been wondering for a while what exactly are the major differences between political science and political sociology. I get that sociology in general is more resistant to quantitative methods than political science (or at least they're lagging as a discipline as poli sci is behind econ). I get the general obsession with gender/race/class as explanatory variables for everything under the sun. My impression is that political sociologists don't typically think institutions matter as much. But from the standpoint of someone studying gender and politics or public opinion or REP are there any other major differences? Would someone with a PhD in political science be able to get a job in a sociology dept as a political sociologist or would they consider the training incompatible/ inappropriate?
And just to be clear I did use the search function first. The one post that came up was http://www.poliscijobrumors.com/topic.php?id=21783#post-146727 and while sort of helpful I'd like a bit more information.
