Rodney Stark's Sociology incorporates networks to a greater extent than
most introductory sociology texts. Many chapters include network
materials. For example, chapter 1 (Groups and Relationships: A
Sociological Sampler) has a section titled Analyzing Social Networks
which features a discussion of Sampson's monastery study. Chapter 2
(Concepts for Social and Cultural Theories) includes a section Networks
which introduces Mark Granovetter's work on weak ties, the concept of
structural holes, and the notion of societies as networks. Other
examples of network analyses are scattered throughout the text. From a
network perspective this text provides a lot to work with.

hello

 

i was hoping that some of you on the list might be able to give me some
suggestions for teaching an introductory sociology course based on
network principles. specifically, any text(s) that you might recommend.
i have some ideas on how to structure the course, but am lacking any
reading that might be better suited to first-year students.

 

i appreciate any suggestions you might have; teaching from the
"standard" perspective is really getting nauseating and more and more
seems irrelevant.

 

thanks much

 

john
