Applications of Social Network Analysis - Sage Benchmarks in Social Research Methods (Hardback)Peter J. Carrington (editor)
- We can order this
Since its appearance in the 1930s in the form of sociometry, social network analysis (SNA) has become a major paradigm for social research in such areas as communication, organizations, and social mobility, to name but a few. It is used by researchers in a wide range of disciplines: like any mathematical approach to social research, social network analysis strips away the unique details of social situations to reveal, or model, the bare structural essentials. By doing so, it enables the researcher to identify similarities across widely disparate contexts, and so to benefit from the insights of many different fields of study. This major work is dedicated specifically to the applications of social network analysis in diverse fields of scholarship. Divided into four volumes, each of which opens with a contextualising introduction written by the editor, this collection aims to provide scholars from a wide range of disciplines with a comprehensive, touchstone resource on the topic.
