At the same time, he contends, other factors have converged at the beginning of the twenty-first century to make such reform more likely than has been the case for many years. Those factors favorable to sentencing reform are not likely to stay in alignment for a long period of time, he believes. Mosteller therefore counsels progressive reformers to act with urgency in advancing reforms in sentencing. With all of this in mind, Mosteller explores a dominant theme in reform – reintegration of offenders into society. He discusses factors impeding reform, factors favoring reform, restorative justice as a new model in sentencing, and restorative justice in relation to reintegration.
