(a) Sketch the directed network of citations.

(b) For each pair of authors count up how many times they cite the same other author.

(c) Next, for each pair of authors, count how many books cite both of them. For example, Crozier and Durkheim are cited by Aron, Bourdieu, and Erikson so the count would be 3.
