In this article John Wozniak reviews the book Restorative Justice: Healing the Foundations of Our Everyday Lives, written by Dennis Sullivan and Larry Tifft and published in 2001. Wozniak’s assessment is that Sullivan and Tifft clearly show their appreciation for restorative justice as a better way to understand and respond to crime, and then they extend restorative justice beyond application to criminal justice alone. Specifically, Sullivan and Tifft contend for restorative justice understood in terms of a needs-based justice approach to problems and harms in society in general.
