This introductory chapter begins with a brief description of the use of the term ‘network’ in this volume, followed by discussions of non-network and network approaches. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented. All the contributions in this volume make explicit use of network models, and the majority from social network analysis (SNA). Many deal with themes that are not a particular strength of SNA, such as dynamic time evolution, geography, and material culture. There are ways of making more use of the powerful techniques of network science, at the risk of moving away from the social questions that ought to be primary; and at the other end of the spectrum, there are those more firmly embedded in the humanities making use of network ideas more figuratively.

Keywords:   social network analysis, non-network approaches, network science, dynamic time evolution, material culture
