This book is about the integration of agent-based modeling and network science. The leading chapter gives a brief historical review as a background and motivation of the book. The historical review begins with the network origin of agent-based models, the rising of autonomous agents and network sciences, the game-theoretic formulation of networks, and the agent-based formulation of networks, and ends with networks as an alternative manifestation of markets. Along this series of development, we see how network work becomes an indispensable element of agent-based models, and how agents-based models can be a powerful tool for modeling the dynamics on and of networks. With this large picture, the book is divided into three parts: foundations, primary dynamics on and of networks, and applications.
