520    Networks pervade social and economic life, and they play a
       prominent role in explaining a huge variety of social and 
       economic phenomena. Standard economic theory did not give 
       much credit to the role of networks until the early 1990s,
       but since then the study of the theory of networks has 
       blossomed. At the heart of this research is the idea that 
       the pattern of connections between individual rational 
       agents shapes their actions and determines their rewards. 
       The importance of connections has in turn motivated the 
       study of the very processes by which networks are formed. 
       In Connections, Sanjeev Goyal puts contemporary thinking 
       about networks and economic activity into context. He 
       develops a general framework within which this body of 
       research can be located. In the first part of the book he 
       demonstrates that location in a network has significant 
       effects on individual rewards and that, given this, it is 
       natural that individuals will seek to form connections to 
       move the network in their favor. This idea motivates the 
       second part of the book, which develops a general theory 
       of network formation founded on individual incentives. 
       Goyal assesses the robustness of current research findings
       and identifies the substantive open questions. Written in 
       a style that combines simple examples with formal models 
       and complete mathematical proofs, Connections is a concise
       and self-contained treatment of the economic theory of 
       networks, one that should become the natural source of 
       reference for graduate students in economics and related 
       disciplines
