Product Description


From one of the most authoritative figures in Social Network Analysis (SNA), this book by John Scott presents another compelling reading on Social Network Studies. Audiences from diverse fields should find this book highly engaging and inspirational, covering SNA fundamentals and substantive applications in studies of a wide range of social phenomenon
Song Yang
University of Arkansas

The key terms of social network analysis are explained in each chapter - density, centrality, [and] components like cliques... Special attention is put on the graph theory, but the role of gestalt theory, field theory, sociometry, group dynamics, and other scientific areas [are] also explained... The book could be recommended to the new comers in social network analysis, as well as to the readers with more familiarity with social network analysis.

Methodspace Book Reviews

The book is an excellent resource that serves workers in SNA, whether a beginner or not, in this field, or in mathematical knowledge. It is an updated source and contains authentic resources.
