The State of the Science and Art of
Criminal Justice and Behavior

Fordhan University

In 1974,   1 had the good fortune to serve as a graduate student intern
    in correctional psychology under Stanley Brodsky at the Univer-
sity of Alabama. One day early that summer, Stan handed me a copy
of a new journal, suggesting, Take a look at this and tell me what you
think. It was the first issue of Criminal Justice and Behavior (CJ&B),
which Stan had just initiated as founding editor, with the support of
Sage Publications. The time was ripe for a journal on psychology and
the criminal justice system, and Stan, with his blend of academic and
real-world experience, was surely the right person to launch it.
   It is not surprising, given the efforts and talents of Stan (editor from
1974 to 1980)-as  well as those of his two distinguished successors,
Don  Gottfredson (1981-1986)  and Allen Hess  (1987-1992)-that
CJ&B   grew and prospered. Little did I then expect, however, to have
the honor of serving as CJ&B's fourth editor, decades later, during its
20th anniversary.
   In human development, 20 is often a chronological marker of young
adulthood. One's identity has taken shape, while one remains open to
new  possibilities for the future. In this spirit, it was felt that a 20th
anniversary issue of CJ&B, on the state of the science and art of
criminal justice and behavior, was certainly appropriate. With this
overarching theme in mind, leading scholars were invited to contribute
papers that (a) reviewed developments in their areas of expertise
