In one sense this article by Kathleen Daly consists of reviews of several recent books on or closely related to restorative justice: Restorative Justice: Theoretical Foundations, edited by Elmar Weitekamp and Hans-Jurgen Kerner (2002); Restorative Justice and the Law, edited by Lode Walgrave (2002); New Visions of Crime Victims, edited by Carolyn Hoyle and Richard Young (2002); and Accountability in Restorative Justice, by Declan Roche (2003). In another sense, it constitutes Daly’s survey of the current state and future prospects of restorative justice in practice and in study. Beginning from the perspective that retributive justice and restorative justice should not be characterized in dichotomous, oppositional terms, Daly interacts with these books, notes the remarkable burgeoning of interest in restorative justice in practice and in study, and asks whether all of this marks a passing fad or the start of a great transformation of justice.
