Martin Wright reviews this book by George Pavlich exploring issues such as the power dynamics between restorative justice and the systems that fund and regulate it, whether victims are empowered or disempowered in their recovery by participating in restorative processes, whether broader social conditions are addressed adequately, and whether the community can serve the purposes given in restorative justice theory.
