Börner, a professor of information and library sciences and a noted expert on information visualization and bibliometrics, admirably accomplishes the enormous task of distilling the breadth and depth of computational modeling. The text provides an overview of modeling methods followed by examples of modeling as applied in science, technology, and policy studies at micro and macro scales. A richly illustrated set of science maps from various disciplines forms the bulk of this atlas. As a highly informational resource on applications of modeling methods, the volume is best suited for academic collections with broad focus on computing, library and information science, and the computational social sciences.-CHOICE
