How is community life changing in response to technological advances? Refreshingly accessible and built on fascinating case examples, this unique book provides not only the theoretical grounding necessary to understand how and why the burgeoning area of social network analysis can be useful in studying communities, but also clear technical explanations of the tools of network analysis and how to gather and analyze real-world network data.
Network analysis allows us to see community life in a new perspective, with sometimes surprising results and insights, and this book enables readers to gain a deeper understanding of social life and the relationships that build and break communities. This engaging text will be an exciting new resource for upper-level undergraduate and beginning graduate students in a wide range of courses including social network analysis, community studies, urban studies, organizational studies, and quantitative methods.

Recensie s 'Katherine Giuffre reveals the deep underlying relational commonalities of such diverse contexts as small town life at the end of Weimar, the Salem witch-frenzy, Boston's East End, and the rise of Apple in Silicon Valley with richly textured description carried by elegantly clear prose that makes reading Communities and Networks both incredibly informative and delightful.
Katherine Giuffre writes with insight and verve. Now social networks have busted the boundaries of communities. They are far-flung and much more than village-like solidarities. The Internet and Mobile Revolutions have pushed these processes even further: community is now in our pocket and on our screens. Communities have become networks; networks have become communities.
Katherine Giuffre tells this story well, and supplies solid evidence to clinch the tale. Giuffre s Communities and Networks is one of the clearest and most engaging introductions to adopting a network perspective on urban and community issues and, by covering a wide range of substantive topics, will be of great interest to a broad audience of students.
