Social selection in adolescent peer relations has been documented for many years (Kandel, 1985). Among boys, the tendency to affiliate with others showing similar levels of aggression is clear in late childhood and increases as they enter adolescence. , 1988). Peer similarities in aggressive tendencies are largely independent of specific individual friendships: The membership of social groupings may change, but the quality of aggressive adolescents' networks tends to remain quite stable over time.

It now seems clear that long-term persistence is associated with hyperactivity/inattention, generally involves early onset, often includes low reactivity to stress, and may be dependent on poor peer relationships. How far these features reflect one or several categories, or are better considered in dimensional terms, remains obscure; answers to these questions will hold important implications for the classification of antisocial disorders. Second, though many broad-range mechanisms for the maintenance of antisocial behavior have been described, we still know very little of the more proximal processes involved in these effects.

Further tests, in more diverse social groups, are needed to determine the basis for such ongoing difficulties. Third, we need to know why early onset is associated with long-term risk: Does it serve primarily as a marker for other early vulnerabilities; as an index of severity; or does early onset per se affect the likelihood of persistence? The few direct tests of this last possibility have produced inconsistent findings. Nagin and Paternoster (1991), for example, found evidence for "state dependence"-prior involvement in offending itself influencing the likelihood of future involvement-in self-reports of relatively minor offending in the late teens.
