If anyone is using the network aspects of Floyd Hunter's 1953 book Community
Power Structure: A Study of Decision Makers or Charles Heying's work on Civic
Elites and Corporate Delocalization that is related--I would be grateful for a
note on what you are generally doing with these and networks.
I am trying to map geographic and social variables into a network study of
local leadership/influentials to get at why the concept of "regions" exists in
local politics, where regions might stop, their homeostatic factors, etc.
The work is generally related to boundary/network issues overall. In other
aspects it is related to what some geographers/political
scientists/sociologists also call state/space issues. I am particularly
interested in drivers for structural homeostasis (e.g. make-up of local
production focuses of industry--like high volume/low value versus high
value/low volume, etc.)
And I promise not to discover 6 degrees of separation again.
