Caught in the Nets: A Critical Examination of the Use of the Concept of "Networks" in Community Development Studies.
Giarchi, George Giacinto
Community Development Journal, v36 n1 p63-71 Jan 2001
Argues that the metaphor of "networks" is valid only in reference to formal relationships, not informal connections such as self-help groups or family and friends. Evaluates uses of network analysis and concludes that "circle" may be a better metaphor for informal connections. Contains 63 references. (SK)
