Social Structures: A Network Approach
[The Wellman-Berkowitz edited book still serves as a nice text. Each article deliberately gives a
traditional approach to an issue, and then shows the social
network approach to a case study. Originally published in 1988 by
Cambridge University Press, the good news is that Elsevier is still
selling a slightly updated version and THE HARDBACK IS NOW AVAILABLE AT PAPERBACK PRICES.]

A while back a request went out to the list for material that might be used
to introduce SNA to students. The focus was not on primary material (e.g.
Scott, Degenne) but on exemplars that had excited list members at some point
in their careers. I believe that discussion was compiled. Does anyone have
the compilation?
Thanks.
