Advanced graduate students and researchers working in sociology, methodology of social sciences, statistics, social networks analysis and computer simulation will benefit from this book.

Analytical Sociology Provides the most complete and up-to-date theoretical treatment of analytical sociology

Leading scholars apply the theoretical principles of analytical sociology to understand how puzzling social and historical phenomena including crime, lynching, witch-hunts, tax behaviours, Web-based social movement and communication, restaurant reputation, job search and careers, social network homophily and instability, cooperation and trust are brought about by complex, multi-layered social mechanisms

The analyses presented in this book rely on a wide range of methods which include qualitative observations, advanced statistical techniques, complex network tools, refined simulation methods and creative experimental protocols

This book ultimately demonstrates that sociology, like any other science, is at its best when it dissects the mechanisms at work by means of rigorous model building and testing

Brings together research from leading global experts in the field in order to present a unique set of examples on mechanism-based sociology

Examines how both computational modelling and experiments can be used to study the complex relation between norms, networks and social actions

Explores a variety of advanced methods to build and test theoretical models

Looks at a wide range of complex social phenomena within a single and unitary theoretical framework
