Product description

Review

'I am often asked by people new to network analysis for something they can read to get a quick sense of the area. I refer them to this book. Now updated, Scott's book continues to be the most accessible introduction to social network analysis. Experts should have two copies: one to use, one to loan' - Ronald S Burt, University of Chicago and European Institute of Business Administration (INSEAD)

Praise for the First Edition:

`This book is essential for those who want to keep up with - and move forward with - the field' - Professor Barry Wellman, University of Toronto

`John Scott's Social Network Analysis: A Handbook fills a gap between simplist introductions and inaccessibly technical treatments. The increasing popularity of these methods warrants a solid introductory text, which Scott's book admirably provides' - David Knoke, University of Minnesota

Synopsis

The revised and updated edition of this bestselling text provides an accessible introduction to the theory and practice of network analysis in the social sciences. It gives a clear and authoritative guide to the general framework of network analysis, explaining the basic concepts, technical measures and reviewing the available computer programs. The book outlines both the theoretical basis of network analysis and the key techniques for using it as a research tool. Building upon definitions of points, lines and paths, John Scott demonstrates their use in clarifying such measures as density, fragmentation and centralization. He identifies the various cliques, components and circles into which networks are formed, and outlines an approach to the study of socially structured positions. He also discusses the use of multidimensional methods for investigating social networks. Social Network Analysis is an invaluable resource for researchers across the social sciences and for students of social theory and research methods.
