The title selected for this volume, The Penal Crisis and the Clapham Omnibus: Questions and Answers in Restorative Justice, represents a deliberate attempt to bring together and discuss issues that critically affect the development of restorative justice as a mainstream penology for the future. Each of the three parts of this book consists of five chapters, the titles of which take the form of questions that are central to an understanding of the present penal crisis in England and Wales, its development and effects, and the way in which a restorative penology might assist in resolving the difficulties engulfing the penal system.
