Reviews

"Box-Steffensmeier and Jones have written a highly accessible and incredibly thoughtful introduction to survival analysis for the social scientist. I find Event History Modeling to be well suited for adoption both as a graduate and self study test. Highly recommended." --Tze Kwang Teo, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, The Political Methodologist
