About this book

When Murat Sertel asked us whether we would be interested in organizing a special issue of the Review of Economic Design on the formation of networks and groups, we were happy to accept because of the growing research on this important topic. We were also pleasantly surprised at the response to our request for submissions to the special issue, receiving a much larger number of sub­ missions than we had anticipated. In the end we were able to put together two special issues of insightful papers on this topic. Given the growing interest in this topic, we also decided (with encouragement from Murat) to combine the special issues in the form of a book for wider dissemination. However, once we had decided to edit the book, it was natural to move beyond the special issue to include at least some of the papers that have been influential in the literature on the formation of networks. These papers were published in other journals, and we are very grateful to the authors as well as the journals for permission to include these papers in the book.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"A network is a very powerful tool for describing the structure of association among agents … . This volume is indispensable for getting a comprehensive overview of this area of research. … the volume is indeed very valuable for learning about the strategic aspects of group formation, especially network formation. … beginning with the pioneering works a selection of the important subsequent research is included. Although this field is developing very rapidly, this book should remain a useful point of reference for a long time." (Anindya Bhattacharya, Social Choice and Welfare, Vol. 23 (1), 2004)
