Global network research is an exciting new area of social analysis. This book is the first to provide a thorough investigation of global network links across time and space. Robert Holton demonstrates the way in which technological and interpersonal networks organise global society, providing vivid examples from the present and the past. This text gives practical advice on how to research global networks, and brings together leading theory and new evidence on the subject for all students learning about globalisation and contemporary social change.
ROBERT HOLTON is a leading historical sociologist. Currently Professor of Sociology at Trinity College, Dublin, he is the author of a number of books and articles on social theory and globalization. His books include Globalization and the Nation-State (Macmillan 1998) and Making Globalization (Palgrave 2005).
