Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heart-breaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder.
But in the social and, indeed, natural sciences, tools that allow us to study the interconnections between the components of complex systems are yielding powerful new insights into how these systems function. How I make and break friendships might seem of little relevance to society at large, except for perhaps to my own happiness, but when an entire social grouping is studied in terms of the social links that connect the people in that society, it transpires that we can make inferences about how allegiances are formed, how rumours spread, which people are most influential and why.
These inferences can be applied by businesses to better target customers for their services, or to better organize their management structures to allow better decisions to be made more quickly, or to identify the most valuable people in their organization. Social network analysis has entered the realm of big business. But social network analysis has seen a ballooning of interest since the last decade of the last millennium, due to powerful new techniques emerging from computer science and mathematics, along with the ready availability of large amounts of data in the form of social traces that people are now freely leaving through their interactions online.
Christine Prell, a professor in sociology at the Maryland Population Research Center, released her introductory book to social network analysis in and competes with an array of books with similar titles and authors coming from diverse backgrounds such as statistics, computer science and physics, as well as sociology. Given the diverse interests and backgrounds of these readers, pitching the discussion at an appropriate level, while managing to cover the main concepts to sufficiently useful detail, becomes the main challenge for the author.
From the point-of-view of the researcher with a social science background but a relative novice to mathematical and computational methods, she succeeds in penning a useful introduction, by mapping a pathway for getting up-and-running in social network analysis.
Issues such as data gathering, validity and reliability of data, the use of matrices as a framework enabling analysis and issues of an ethical nature are all defined, examined and summarized in Part I.
Dyads configurations consisting of two actors and triads local configurations consisting of three actors and the relations between these are described so as to explore key analytical notions of structural balance, clustering and transitivity.
From these small group configurations, Prell proceeds to consider larger network structures. Key issues examined include various means of measuring social groupings in terms of density and cohesion. From this point onwards, the work becomes decidedly more mathematical in approach as positional and role analysis within groups is discussed.
Part III considers the statistical significance of SNA and some key differences in different statistical techniques currently in use. Some of these topics include the on-going importance of the consideration of social capital in SNA and the rise of social networking sites and the data on virtual relations which they engender.
Developments in software and advice on how to get started in the use of such software is considered in the numerous appendices. Overall this is a useful introduction, which leaves the reader with an overview of the field and whets the appetite for delving deeper into the research. Related Papers.

In Europe, where agrarian landscapes are perceived to be cultural entities from which society expects multiple benefits, conflicts between intensive agricultural production and environmental conservation are well known Young et al. When users of the same resource have divergent values and conflicting interests it becomes necessary to understand the different perspectives of the actors involved to enable successful governance Cash et al. Therefore, policy makers have started to promote participation and the involvement of stakeholders into decision making and policy implementation Reed , Prager and Nagel Participation has shown to benefit the legitimacy of recommendations more generally but also the social outcomes of management Bryson , Young et al. Recent examples are participatory approaches recommended for the green infrastructure GI strategy, launched by the European Commission EC in to foster biodiversity conservation among other goals EC a, Kettunen et al.

We live in a world that is paradoxically small and vast: each of us is embedded in local communities and yet we are only a few 'links' away from anyone else in the world. This engaging book represents these interdependencies' positive and negative consequences, their multiple effects and the ways in which a local occurrence in one part of the world can directly affect the rest. Then it demonstrates precisely how these interactions and relationships form. Save to Library.
