  I take particular pride in introducing this special issue. Dale
Posey, the issue editor, has been one of the truly excellent
psychologists who blends the sensitivity of the clinician and the
scholarly approach of the researcher with his dedication to his
work in the field of correctional psychology.
  This issue focuses on typologies. The beginning of any field of
inquiry involves parsing phenomena or identifying types of
people. The creators of major classification systems of types of
offenders, or their collaborators, have been asked to recount how
they developed their system and how they assess its current status.
We hope this provides a special insight into the systems, and an
opportunity to evaluate the state of the field as a whole. These
should help the practitioner more artfully apply these systems to
their own situation, to foster empirical evaluation of these efforts,
and to enable the researcher to consider the next generation of
typologies. We hope this issue excites you as it excited us in its
development, and that this excitement sustains you in your work.
