This is fairly easy if you have a master calendar with a MonthID field that is an integer the runs sequentially for each month.

Suppose in your calendar Mar2013 is MonthID 47 and you select this month.

An expression that gives the result you want will use a set analysis set modifier such as

<MonthID = {"<=$(=max(MonthID))>=$(=max(MonthID)-11)"}>

this is like hard writing <MonthID = {"<=47>=36"}>

You may need to add other parts to your set analysis to get the correct result. If you have select 2013 in the Year field in addition to selecting a month the expression will exclude records outside of 2013 unless you add the term Year = to the expression which causes the expression to disregards selections in the Year field:

<MonthID = {"<=$(=max(MonthID))>=$(=max(MonthID)-11)"}, Year = >
