Dear Prof. Bastani
Congratulations on the founding of the Social Network Group of the Iranian
Sociological Association. I founded the International Network for Social
Network Analysis in 1976, with only 175 members. From the start, we have
been international, but the early members were only from North America,
Europe and Australia. Now we have more than 1,300 members from all
continents, and we have met for the first time in Asia.
I know that Iranians have strong interest in social network analysis.
Prof. Susan Bastani has done world-famous work, and I have much
correspondence with Iranians interested in the field. The essence of
social network is to avoid artificially-imposed boundaries, and I look
forward to more links being forged with Iranian scholars.
