About the Author

Thomas W. Valente is a Professor in the Department of Preventive Medicine, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California.


Valentes Social Networks and Health adopts a public health perspective and is very rich in examples of practical and policy applications, though it also offers an introduction to basic concepts and measures. While particularly close to medical sociology and social work, it also provides abundant insight into processes of diffusion of behaviours and ideas through networks, of potential interest to other areas of sociology too. * Paola Tubaro, Sociology *
It is a comprehensive introduction to a field that may not be well known to the broader epidemiologic community but could go a long way to making an impact upon researchers if they take the opportunity to see how this approach can be used in a variety of fields. The author has produced a very readable text on an issue of growing importance in epidemiology and public health more generally. * American Journal of Epidemiology *
