Thank you folks. I have some good refs and plenty to think about.
Sam: yes, I was thinking long-term interaction was important too.
David: Core / periphery makes sense as an alternate way to think about
Charles: When I didn't see "backbone" in the index of your book I sent

only skimmed some of the sections of yours. This is a good excuse to
allocate some time. Any hints at where to look first?
Thank again everyone!
