Timely new report from the National Academy of Sciences. It’s full title is Application of Social Network Analysis for Building Community Disaster Resilience. Note that the full report is 131 pages, but the you can browse it or just download parts of it at no cost. Hard copies also can be ordered.
The report was done for the Dept. of Homeland Security with the intention of providing an agenda for future research needs. It is not an easy read. I recommend Chapter 4, titled From Theory to Practice, for those wanting some essential points. More later when I get to read the entire document and think about it!.
