This short essay by Kristin Reimer points to the tension between ideal and reality in restorative justice. Restorative justice has high ideals, promises much, and feels innovative. Yet it is also subject to ills and pitfalls like any other system. Reimer introduces this issue of Conciliation Quarterly to help theorists and practitioners sustain the xe2x80x9ccutting edgexe2x80x9d of restorative justice in the face of the risk of losing that xe2x80x9cedgexe2x80x9d and suffering disillusionment.
