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.
