Computational Social Science is an interdisciplinary field undergoing rapid growth due to the availability of ever increasing computational power leading to new areas of research.

Embracing a spectrum from theoretical foundations to real world applications, the Wiley Series in Computational and Quantitative Social Science is a series of titles ranging from high level student texts, explanation and dissemination of technology and good practice, through to interesting and important research that is immediately relevant to social / scientific development or practice.

The series is aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students, researchers and practitioners within statistics and social science and included here is a cover picture of one of the titles, The Visualization of Spatial Social Structure by Professor Danny Dorling, with whom there will be an upcoming interview on Statistics News.

Primary subject areas within the scope of the series include:
• mathematical sociology
