Networks - New links across disciplines

Jake Keenan "Trust the network."
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 – in neural networks, in more popular books, in economics, and in mathematical works. I hope to fill these holes out in time."
Networks: An Introduction
Networks: An Introduction
"Finally a very good, network summary text."
Weak Links: The Universal Key to the Stability of Networks and Complex Systems (The Frontiers Collection)
Weak Links: The Universal Key to the Stability of Networks and Complex Systems (The Frontiers Collection)
"Stupendous and unusual; catches the excitement of network ideas while boldly advancing the relevance of weak links as an important concept."
Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives
Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives
"Delightful read on the surprising dynamics of social networks. Very accessible and could be an introduction to networks."
Six Degrees: The Science of a Connected Age
Six Degrees: The Science of a Connected Age
"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."
Social Structures
Social Structures
"Clear and updated treatment of the same social network territory covered in Harrison White's Identity and Control."
Evolution of Networks: From Biological Nets to the Internet and WWW (Physics)
Evolution of Networks: From Biological Nets to the Internet and WWW (Physics)
"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."
An Introduction to Systems Biology: Design Principles of Biological Circuits (Chapman & Hall/CRC Mathematical and Computational Biology)
An Introduction to Systems Biology: Design Principles of Biological Circuits (Chapman & Hall/CRC Mathematical and Computational Biology)
"Life as networks ... an accessible intro to an exciting and important change of emphasis in biology."
Theories of Communication Networks
Theories of Communication 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."
Systems Biology: Properties of Reconstructed Networks
Systems Biology: Properties of Reconstructed Networks
"A solid overview of systems biology principles. Gives great conceptual view of current status of network ideas, but most of book is focused on mathematical ideas for researchers."
The Moment of Complexity: Emerging Network Culture
The Moment of Complexity: Emerging Network Culture
"Best cultural overview. Stronger in philosophy than in network theory itself."
