Agent-Based Models of Social Life - Elements in quantitative and computational methods for the social sciences by R. Michael Alvarez
"These are really solid books. Mick Laver has thought deeply about how to link agent based models to data in elections and he's done a wonderful job deeply unpacking segregation and polarization using agent based models. He does a careful, thoughtful, thorough analysis of Schelling's segregation model in the shorter book. Worth having at the price (which is free)."
