His research includes studies of inequality in the U.S., including empirical analyses, such as “Producing and Reproducing Class and Status Differences: Racial and Gender Gaps in U.S. Employment and Retirement Earnings,” Social Problems 45:528-549 (with Carolyn C. Perrucci) and  theoretical/historical analyses, such as “Class, Race, and Gender Inequality,” Race, Gender & Class 8 (2):61-93, along with studies of community politics, including Class and Community in Frontier Colorado (Lawrence, University Press of Kansas, 1990) and The Failure of Planning: Permitting Sprawl in San Diego Suburbs, 1970-1999 (Ohio State University Press, 2003).  His book manuscript on Reconstruction Georgia is currently under review at a university press.
