Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"A Synthesis of Longitudinal Research seeks to capitalize on the rapidly accumulating numbers of longitudinal crime and delinquency studies. … The Long View of Crime is composed of seven independently authored chapters each dedicated to an in-depth examination of a specific aspect of the adolescent experience as addressed by longitudinal research on crime and delinquency. … A salient strength of the book is the analysis of the longitudinal method itself. … useful for the book’s target audience of researchers and practitioners." (Stephen E. Tillotson, Journal of Youth and Adolescence, Vol. 38, 2009)
