Dear All,

My new book _Web Social Science: Concepts, Data and Tools for Social 
Scientists in the Digital Age_ has finally made it to bookshops here in 
the Antipodes so I can now confirm that it is out.

The book is organised as follows:

Chapter 1 Introduction

Part I: Web Social Science Methods
Chapter 2 Online research methods
Chapter 3 Social media networks
Chapter 4 Hyperlink networks

Part II: Web Social Science Examples
Chapter 5 Friendship formation and social influence
Chapter 6 Organisational collective behaviour
Chapter 7 Politics and participation
Chapter 8 Government and public policy
Chapter 9 Production and collaboration
Chapter 10 Commerce and marketing



If you are using the book in your course, I might be able to provide a 
skype lecture on a particular chapter/topic.  Timezones and class size 
(i.e. book sales!) may be a factor...

Best regards,

Dr Robert Ackland
Associate Professor, Australian Demographic and Social Research Institute, The Australian National University
