In the nest four chapters, we will analyze the network of interlocking directorates according to the research design presented in Section 3.3. A few introductory remarks will be made here about the analytical tools to be used. Most of them are based on graph theory, a special branch of mathematics, the results which are used in the social sciences for quantitative structural analysis. Our presentation of some graph-theoretical concepts will be very summary and non-mathematical. For a more detailed and competent introduction, the reader is referred to Harary (1972).
