Network Analysis and Ethnographic Problems: Process Models of a Turkish Nomad Clan[1] (a Google book) is an anthropological and complexity science book by social anthropologistDouglas R. White, University of California, Irvine, and Ulla Johansen of the University of Cologne.

A longitudinal ethnography of a given people as a complex interactive system, in this case from an ethnogenesis of Yörük Oghuz origin (of which the Seljuk are a clan) in the late 18th century in Turkey to the present date, based on the detailed genealogies and chronicles recorded in fieldwork carried out between 1956 and 2004 recorded by ethnographer Ulla Johansen. The analysis of these data provides for an account of social dynamics relevant to many parts of the Middle East.
