By Terrie E. Moffitt (auth.), Elmar G. M. Weitekamp, Hans-Jürgen Kerner (eds.)

Background In July of 1992, nearly sixty students and researchers met for per week on the "Fritz Erler Akademie" in Freudenstadt, Germany, to take part in a workshop entitled "Cross-National Lon­ gitudinal study on Human improvement and felony Behavior". The individuals represented 15 international locations and forty five universities and learn facilities. even supposing longitudinal learn in criminology has a protracted heritage, this workshop represented the 1st one within the box of criminology within which it was once tried to social gathering the most students during this box from world wide. the most important crew of the workshop represented American students (19), a mirrored image of the truth that longitudi­ nal examine in criminology is predominantly carried out in North the US. This quantity is the results of the workshop procedure and particularly of the invites to contributors to organize pre­ or convention papers. The chapters during this quantity have been chosen from a bigger set of pre- or convention papers. As workshop conveners and quantity editors, it falls to us to set many of the context for this input­ prise.
