He is the author of two books (Encountering American Faultlines andDeveloping Poverty) and numerous articles on migrant transnationalism, immigrant incorporation, ethnic and racial identities on the one hand, and informal economies, cooperatives, and the state on the other. He works within the world-system theoretical paradigm, but is interested in the local variations within the world economic and political systems. He investigates how local and regional institutional forms and identity formation processes develop and interact with world-systemic trends.
