Mark Granovetter’s writings about weak ties

A couple days ago I came across information about David Pecaut and how he had studied with Mark Granovetter at university.   I decided to locate Granovetter’s essays on weak ties and came across two sources.  First is his original paper (pdf) from May 1973 edition of the American Journal of Sociology on the topic, and second is a literature review (pdf) of research from 1983 in the Sociological Theory conducted on the basis of Granovetter’s original thesis.  Worth reading!
