From the Preface
We had four main goals in writing this book:
1. To clarify and develop models and methods for causal analysis of dynamic social processes.
2. To formulate continuous-time models of change in both quantitative and qualitative outcomes and to develop suitable methods for estimating these models from the kinds of data commonly available to sociologists.
3. To develop a stochastic framework for analyzing both qualitative and quantitative outcomes.
4. To altere the way that sociologists think about the empirical study of social change processes.
