***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Can anyone suggest papers that place SNA in the broader realm of social science? I've been exploring SNA of conservation stakeholders, and one of my board members wants to know where it fits among other perspectives, traditions, theories, schools of thought, world views, etc., in social science? He also wonders, assuming that SNA does not provide everything, what other approaches complement SNA for understanding social systems? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
