This paper describes the theoretical and empirical usefulness of social network analysis for an understanding of the social and spatial change known as gentrification. It is based on research in a west London neighbourhood. As a result of these observations the potential for an expanded use of social network analysis in social geography and urban sociology is outlined. The paper reveals: an analysis of gentrification must include workplace as well as home and be situated at a city-wide scale rather than being confined to residential neighbourhoods; residence must be treated as a temporal as well as a spatial concept; and the "residence tradition" of social geography is inadequate for a full understanding of social change in cities. Social network analysis is a method which helps overcome some of the weaknesses of the residence tradition.
