The application of Stein's method of obtaining rates of convergence to the normal distribution is illustrated in the context of random graph theory. Problems which exhibit a dissociated structure and problems which do not are considered. Results are obtained for the number of copies of a given graph G in K(n, p), for the number of induced copies of G, for the number of isolated trees of order k ≥ 2, for the number of vertices of degree d ≥ 1, and for the number of isolated vertices.
