“This book explains the philosophy of restorative justice in clear language, and shows how it can help restore people after harm has been caused, whether in a family, school, community, criminal justice or prison context. It draws on the practice of many projects throughout the UK, and also looks at its use in other situations worldwide. For restorative justice is now a global movement.
The book is designed to fill the gap between the introductory texts on restorative justice and those examining the many complex issues around its implementation. So it covers a broad field and explains how restorative justice works in different contexts. The inclusion of many case studies shows how these principles work out in practice. It is not a “how to” book — there are manuals and handbooks for this, although more would be welcome.” (excerpt)
