Daniel Nagin’s work on developmental trajectories represents a fundamental component of modern thinking about delinquency. Further, as a paradigm for behavior modeling, his approach has great potential throughout the social sciences. This is an important book.—Steven Durlauf, University of Wisconsin–Madison

Nagin’s book provides a thorough and accessible treatment of the statistical method for analyzing longitudinal data to which he has contributed so much in the last decade. The hallmark of this method is its identification of a set of distinct trajectories of change over time in order to capture a sample’s diversity in patterns of development. Nagin and his colleagues have applied, refined, and extended this approach over the past decade and this book is the culmination that brings it all together.—D. Wayne Osgood, Pennsylvania State University
