Connections:
An Introduction to the Economics of Networks
Sanjeev Goyal

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This book is an excellent introduction to the theory of social networks and should be the top choice for any graduate student interested in the subject."--Markus Mobius, Department of Economics, Harvard University

"Connections provides an overview of the new and exciting economic approach to social networks. Accessible to noneconomists and providing a wide range of illustrations, including information-sharing networks, research-collaboration networks among firms, and labor-market networks, the book addresses two main questions: How does a pattern of connections influence behaviors, the efficiency of outcomes, and the diffusion of information? And what are the incentives to establish connections in the first place? Highly recommended."--Gabrielle Demange, L'Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris

"Written by a pioneer and leading contributor in the field, Connections provides an authoritative account of the recent economic literature on networks. It discusses theoretical models, economic applications, and empirical evidence on networks in a clear, concise, and vivid fashion. Undoubtedly, this book will prove to be invaluable, both as a reference on network theory and as a textbook for advanced students in economic theory."--Francis Bloch, GREQAM, Marseille; and University of Warwick
