Professor John Laub is presenting a seminar "A Tale of Two Eras: A Reconsideration of Turning Points and Pathways out of Crime" at the Institute of Criminology at the University of Cambridge on October 22, 2015. In this seminar, Professor Laub presents the nuts and bolts of the Sheldon and Eleanor Glueck study of 500 delinquent boys, whom he followed up for another half-century.
