We present a theoretical formalism to predict two-point clustering statistics (the power spectrum and the two-point correlation function), which simultaneously takes account of the linear velocity distortion, the nonlinear velocity distortion (finger-of-god), the cosmological redshift-space distortion, and the light-cone effect. To demonstrate the importance of these effects in exploring the clustering of objects at high redshifts, we show several model predictions for magnitude-limited surveys of galaxies and quasars. This methodology provides a quantitative tool to test various theoretical models against the upcoming precision data on clustering in the universe.
