After retiring from the University of Wyoming in 2008, Massey moved to Portland, and currently teaches at Portland State University. In addition to editing Readings for Sociology, he is the author of Ways of Social Change, a textbook on social change from Sage Publications. His interests in comparative sociology led him to live and do research in Eastern Europe, East Africa, Australia, and the Middle East.
