***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi, I would like to know if anyone knows reference on social networks and their influence (political or economical) in colonial times in America (or another parts of the World where colonies did exist). Actually a colleague and I are working with a network of marriage and compadrazgo ties (Padgett-style) in colonial Buenos Aires and its influence in the political process previous to May Revolution of 1810 that began the war of independence in what is now Argentina. I actually google it but any further reference will be greatly thanked. Specially if it has been published in any history journal. Thanks in advance Juan MC Larrosa _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
