"Throughout history, hierarchies housed in high towers have claimed to rule, but often real power has resided in the networks in the town square below. It is through networks that revolutionary ideas can contagiously spread. Niall Ferguson tells the story of the rise, fall, and rise of networks, and shows how network theory - concepts such as clustering, degrees of separation, weak ties, contagions and phase transitions - can transform our understanding of both the past and the present."--Provided by the publisher.
