Special issue of Federal Probation looks at "30 Years with Federal Sentencing Guidelines"

The latest issue of the journal Federal Probation, which is published by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, features a special section looking at "30 Years with Federal Sentencing Guidelines."  As revealed by the contents reprinted below, I had the honor of contributing a short article to this issue and that authorship puts me in some notable company:

Federal Sentencing Policy: Role of the Judicial Conference of the United States and the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts by Hon. Ricardo S. Martinez

The Integral Role of Federal Probation Officers in the Guidelines System by Hon. William H. Pryor Jr.

Reflecting on Parole’s Abolition in the Federal Sentencing System by Douglas A. Berman

Five Questions for the Next Thirty Years of Federal Sentencing by Steven L. Chanenson

State Sentencing Guidelines: A Garden Full of Variety by Kelly Lyn Mitchell

Brief summaries of these pieces are available at this link, but I urge everyone to download the full issue here.
