Exploring social networks – Zachary's karate club dataset

In 1977, Wayne W. Zachary published a paper in the Journal of Anthropological Research titled An Information Flow Model for Conflict and Fission in Small Groups. In this paper, he wrote about a social network of friendships between 34 members of a karate club at a US university. This paper depicted the information flow model for conflict and fission in small groups. In this recipe, we are going to dig into this case study and get a better understanding of this dataset.
