Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Westaby (social-organizational psychology, Columbia U.) notes in his preface that social sciences are recognizing that social networks are phenomena able to motivate people and change lives. But he also observes that the literature hasn't answered the questions of why social networks are so powerful or how they encourage and regulate change. The author here presents his dynamic network theory as a unified way to explain how so many behavioral characteristics such as goal achievement, performance, and other behavior-related elements are influenced by social networks. Some of the specific topics he addresses include dynamic goal pursuit: network motivation, emotions, conflict, and power; interventions: leadership, helping, networking, and organizational learning; cognition and mental health in social networks, and more.
