Adolescence-Limited and Life-Course-Persistent Antisocial Behavior: A Developmental Taxonomy.
Moffitt, Terrie E.
Psychological Review, v100 n4 p674-701 Oct 1993
A dual taxonomy is presented to reconcile two incongruous facts about antisocial behavior, that it shows impressive continuity over age, but its prevalence changes dramatically over age, increasing almost tenfold during adolescence. Studying delinquents earlier in life may yield more information about the causes and antecedents of antisocial behavior. (SLD)
