The list author says: "Network ideas are sweeping through sociology, physics, and biology among other fields. Since I find a gap in lists related to this subject, I decided to start this one. Still, there are holes to fill in what I have so far Â in neural networks, in more popular books, in economics, and in mathematical works. I hope to fill these holes out in time."
"The best of the popular works (see also Linked, Sync, Small Worlds, and Nexus). It captures many of the hottest ideas in a clear and relevant way. He adds his personal journey on the recent (re-)discovery of networks without being off-putting."
"Solid appraisal of modern network ideas especially the evolutionary dynamics of networks. Although it covers examples from many fields, the viewpoint retains the flavor of physicists' really getting a mathematical handle on networks."
"A network overview from the sociological perspective. Attempts to hammer out a research program linking a very wide array of social network studies. Is more involved with the interplay of small local network motifs and the changes in local nodes (social agents) than with very large, small worlds networks."
