Christakis's recent Nature paper about networks in hunter-gatherer
societies ( ("Social networks and cooperation in
hunter-gatherers") prompted a discussion with a colleague about other
scholarship on the size or structure of ego or social networks in other
historical eras or socio-cultural contexts. Basically is there any
scholarship which has tracked the growth or stability social networks with
respect to the number of alters or size of networks?

Thanks!
