He received PhD from Johns Hopkins University in 2003. From 2003 to 2008 he has been a professor of sociology at the University of Pittsburgh; since 2008 at the University of Sydney. He has also been a Visiting Associate Professor at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore (2015) and a Visiting Scholar at Academia Sinica in Taipei (2015).[1]
Babones has offered a reformulation of world-systems analysis that distinguishes five core elements of the perspective from ancillary theories that have been promulgated within that perspective. He added to these five core elements the "strong theorem" that the core-periphery hierarchy of the modern world-economy could best be understood in terms of state strength and cultural integration. He began to use the historical Chinese concept of tianxia ("all under heaven") to describe the structure of the millennial world-system as an American tianxia that has endogenized the entire world-economy under a single, American-dominated political system. He also writes on quantitative methodology for the social sciences.[1]
His research into Australian universities' dependence on international (particularly Chinese) students has driven international education debates in the country.[2][3][4][5]
He has been associated with or written for the Institute for Policy Studies (Washington), the Russian International Affairs Council (Moscow), the Centre for International Relations (Warsaw), the Poland-Asia Research Center (Warsaw), the Latvian International Affairs Council (Riga) and the Centre for Independent Studies (Sydney).[1][6] Babones is also a Contributing Editor to 19FortyFive.[7]
In 2018 he published a book The New Authoritarianism: Trump, Populism, and the Tyranny of Experts on Donald Trump and his administration, dealing with modern meaning and framing of concepts such as democracy, populism and authoritarianism.[8] The book has as named ‘Best on Politics 2018’ by the Wall Street Journal.[9]
He has supported Trump's populist approach [9][8] and has described Ashli Babbitt, killed in the 2021 storming of the United States Capitol, as "an American hero".[10]
