“This chapter begins with a look at basic ways of redressing injustice and then at the nature of reparaton — forms it can take, what it can accomplish and optimal conditions for achieving those results. From there, the chapter turns to a discussion of several key issues related to reparation in restorative justice.” (excerpt)
