Charles Kadushin : Making Connections: Network Theory, Concepts and
Findings, Oxford University Press, will be out in 2011. It had a chapter
on network history but in view of the many other good treatments and a
lack of space I dropped it. If you request it, I can send you the draft.
One of the interesting things I discovered while writing it is that even
though people in the network field, as compared with some others, have
unusually good and collegial relations with one another, possibly
because we ourselves started as an informal network (INSNA's original
principle of management was "trust me"), every history of the field is a
political statement that is bound to exalt some and offend others. The
outpouring of suggested sources for histories will bear this out.
