Product Description


Over the past decades Social Network Analysis has broadened its scope from anthropology and sociology to all behavioral and social sciences, from social and organizational psychology to management science and economics. This Handbook provides well-founded introductions and overviews for a broad range of social network studies, approaches, and methodology. It is a must for everybody who is interested in the way social network relations evolve, are structured and affect outcomes in any part of our life and society

There is something for everyone in The SAGE Handbook of Social Network Analysis. Whether you are brand new to the field or a seasoned expert, interested in the theoretical underpinnings of network analysis or the methodological nuts and bolts associated with analyzing the evolution of an affiliation network over time, this book is a must have
Michael Schwartz, Chair, Department of Sociology
Stony Brook University, USA

An outstanding volume that brings together contributions from the world’s leading experts on social network analysis. Methods, theory and substantive applications are presented in a clear exposition making this the most comprehensive text available in this rapidly expanding and changing field. For anyone with any interest in social networks this is quite simply a “must have” book
Martin Everett, Professor of Social Network Analysis,
Manchester University, UK

The editors have chosen recognized specialists for each subject treated in the Handbook, and there are many subjects treated... The Handbook provides well-founded introductions and overviews for this broad range of social network studies, approaches, and methodology. It is a necessary acquisition for anybody intererested in the way social network relations evolve, are structured and affect outcomes in all parts of our life and society.

Bulletin of Sociological Methodology

The Scott and Carrington handbook is brimful with the most influential analysts in the field, including Freeman, Borgatti, White, Faust, and Marsden, to name only a few. The book has exceptionally good organisation, meant to comprehensively cover both theory and method ... [so] novice and experienced analysts have the essential tools for conducting any type of qualitative of quantitative study using social network methodology. Particularly welcome are chapters that include a wide range of subjects studied with SNA, including some that are especially timely, such as the more controversial examination of social physics.
L. L. Hansen
Western New England University

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is thorough 17 Aug 2012
By M. Hemken - Published on
This book will answer your questions about Social Network Analysis. I didn't buy it. My school's library has a copy of it.

I'm a Sociology student just diving into the field of SNA. This book covers every aspect of the field: origins, theory, methods, mathematics, applications, visualization... everything you ever wanted to know about SNA. You have a question? This book will answer it in detail. The key phrase here is "in detail". This book offers more detail than you thought was available on the topic of SNA.

Oh, you thought SNA was new and fresh? Ha. Haha. Hahaha. HahahahHAHAHAHAHA!!

WARNING: This book is for people who can tolerate narrow margins, small print and liberal use of jargon.
