An Analysis of the Sociology of Nan Lin
Edited by Ronald S. Burt, Yanjie Bian, Lijun Song and Nan Lin
Chapter 2: Nan Lin and social capital
Nan Lin’s work on social capital is a significant, unique contribution. My purpose here is to explain that statement by looking at the work in historical context.

The horizontal axis is time, beginning in 1975 when Nan Lin was at the State University of New York at Albany (now the University of Albany), through his 1990 move to Duke University, and on to 2010.
