Just in time for the Sunbelt conference in Cancun (and we in TOronto are
really counting on that sun), I'm delighted to tell you that Wellman *
Steve Berkowitz' _Social Structures_: A Network Approach, has just been
republished in a beautiful new edition (look for the bright yellow cover
at the Sunbelt).
As Lin Freeman wrote for our back cover, "This is a classic in the field,
edited by two of the founders of social network analysis."
Almost all of 18 of the articles are original pieces, first written in the
1980s. They are written by leaders in the field and provde a clear,
non-technical understanding of social network analysis. The book is 528
pp. long. The lead authors, besides Steve and me are Nancy Howell, Ron
Breiger, Bonnie Erickson, Les Howard, Michal Bodemann, Harriet Friedmann,
Chuck Tilly, Bob Brym, Doug White, Lorne Tepperman, Mark Granovetter, and
Why bother to read something from the 1980s? You get a clear, non-technial
intro to social network analysis. We've taken special care to make the
book readable and broad in scope. Each article takes a substantive area,
and shows how social network analysis helps to understand it.
