In addition, Roger Gould & Peter Bearman's work comes directly to mind.  For example:

Bearman, Peter. 1993. Relations into Rhetorics: Local Elite Social Structure in Norfolk, England: 1540-1640. ASA Rose Monograph Series ed. New Brunswick: Rutgers University Press.
Bearman, Peter S., Robert Faris, and James Moody. 1999. "Blocking the Future: New Solutions for Old Problems in Historical Social Science." Social Science History 23:501-33.
Gould, Roger V. 1991. "Multiple Networks and Mobilization in the Paris Commune, 1871." American Sociological Review 56:716-29.
         ---------. 1996. "Patron-Client Ties, State Centralization, and the Whiskey Rebellion." American Journal of Sociology 102:400-429.

Peaceful thoughts,
Jim
