An excellent summary introduction is by David Knoke and Song Yang (2008) Social Network Analysis, 2nd edition, Sage.
 
A very comprehensive look at different sub-fields is the +40 chapters Handbook of Social Network Analysis edited by John Scott and Peter Carrington forthcoming by Sage.
 
For an overview of employing networks using UCINET a good source is the on-line text by Robert Hanneman and Mark Riddle http://www.faculty.ucr.edu/~hanneman/nettext/ 
 
Hope useful

***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** A recently-released and undergraduate-oriented text book (available free on the web) from David Easley and Jon Kleinberg:

http://www.cs.cornell.edu/home/kleinber/networks-book/

It strays a bit from "canonical" network methods into some novel applications of game theory and other economic topics towards networks, but the earlier and final chapters have some excellent discussions of dynamics, cascades, and structure of large networks.

Carrington, J. Scott and S. Wasserman (Eds.): Models and methods in
social network analysis, 2005, New York, Cambridge University Press.
