The bibliography was undertaken to review studies that would be useful in estimating the probability of an offenders post-release success. Offenders and the requirements for processing them through the military justice system are major problems for the Army. Currently, emphasis is placed upon correctional treatment and returning a maximum number of offenders to duty with the potential for successful adjustment to Army life. In order to attain this end, offenders who will not or cannot respond to correction treatment need to be identified and separately processed. Effective correctional treatment programs needs to be developed and implemented for those identified as having potential for successful adjustment. The annotated bibliography examines the method and findings of many major civilian and military studies in the areas of prediction of delinquency and parole success.
