    The academic debate about “what works” in crime prevention and rehabilitation has a long and often contentious history. The international context of falling crime rates, relatively static re-offending rates and rising prison populations in many OECD countries provides a complex and at times puzzling context for these enquiries. In What Works in Corrections, Doris Layton MacKenzie examines the effects of correctional interventions, management policies, and treatment and rehabilitation programs on the recidivism of offenders and delinquents. She reviews different strategies for reducing recidivism and describes how the evidence for effectiveness is assessed.

The set of four volumes () edited by Rufus Wilmot Griswold () and printed by J. S. Redfield (Justus Starr Redfield, ) is an important crossroads in the publication of Poe’s writings. It was the first attempt at collecting both poetry and prose, and the first collection of Poe’s critical, editorial and miscellaneous writings.
