"This excellent collection of papers will provide great one-stop shopping to those working in the evolving world of network research. It may very well become a standard resource for the growing number of courses on networks now beginning to pervade curricula. Indeed, a current difficulty in teaching such a course is that there are no good texts, and a quick look around the Web reveals that almost all these courses are taught using research papers, many of which appear in this collection."--Dan Rockmore, Dartmouth College"I read this anthology with great interest. The editors took pains to locate (and even translate) a significant number of papers predating the recent surge of interest in the science of networks, and they do a fine job of clarifying what exactly is new (and what is not so new) in the modern approach as reflected in the vast literature on the subject. The introduction to each section nicely summarizes the main findings of the featured articles."--Sergei Maslov, Brookhaven National LaboratoryBarabasi, Alebert-Laszlo is the author of 'Structure And Dynamics of Networks ', published 2006 under ISBN 9780691113579 and ISBN 0691113572.
