    The book combines complexity theory with a contribution to understanding of Middle Eastern social structure through an ethnographic study of network dynamics. - it is 500 pages and chock full of diagrams and illustrations. Using network visualization and the study of the dynamics of marriage choices, Network Analysis and Ethnographic Problems expands the theory of social practice to show how changes in the structure of a society's kinship network affect the development of social cohesion over time. Using the genealogical networks of a Turkish nomad clan, the authors explore how changes in network cohesion are indicative of key processes of social change. This approach alters in fundamental ways the anthropological concepts of social structure, organizational dynamics, social cohesion, marriage strategies, as well as the study of community politics within the dynamics of ongoing personal interaction. See the Foreword by Andrey Korotayev.
