Social Networks in the Modern City
Irving, Henry W.
Social Forces, 55, 4, 867-80, Jun 77
Social network, an interesting theoretical concept, has suffered through difficulties in developing from it any operational devices suitable for use in ordinary social survey research. Here one such device is presented, and its utility is examined in the contrasting urban contexts of Hull and Los Angeles. Also, the role of kinship in the social networks of modern urban society is assessed. (Author/JM)
