In this essay, Reginald Wilkinson, Director of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, introduces this particular issue of Corrections Management Quarterly which features articles on the restorative justice movement. As Wilkinson remarks, restorative justice is not a new idea. It has been practiced, he asserts, in various ways throughout the ages. Yet now it is taking new currency. Wilkinson describes his own growing interest in the value of restorative justice, its connections with community justice, and the use of community justice principles and practices in the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.
