'Social Network Analysis: Methods and Examples' prepares social science students to conduct their own social network analysis (SNA) by covering basic methodological tools along with illustrative examples from various fields.

This innovative book takes a conceptual rather than a mathematical approach as it discusses the connection between what SNA methods have to offer and how those methods are used in research design, data collection, and analysis. Four substantive applications chapters provide examples from politics, work and organizations, mental and physical health, and crime and terrorism studies.
