Item Description...
Overview
Examines the limits and failures of the criminal justice system in the West and explains the practice of restorative justice as an alternative conflict resolution process in criminal cases.

Publishers Description

How should we as a society respond to wrongdoing? When a crime occurs or an injustice is done, what needs to happen? What does justice require? Restorative justice is a process to involve, to the extent possible, those who have a stake in a specific offense and to collectively identify and address harms, needs, and obligations, in order to heal and put things as right as possible.
Written by the founder of the restorative justice movement.
Vengeance and bitter violence have had their turns -- without redemptive results. How should we as a society respond to wrongdoing? When a crime occurs or an injustice is done, what needs to happen? What does justice require?
Howard Zehr, known worldwide for his pioneering work in transforming our understandings of justice, here proposes workable Principles and Practices for making restorative justice both possible and useful. First he explores how restorative justice is different from criminal justice. Then, before letting those appealing observations drift out of reach, into theoretical space, Zehr presents Restorative Justice Practices.
Zehr undertakes a massive and complex subject and puts it in graspable form, without reducing or trivializing it. This is a handbook, a vehicle for moving our society toward healing and wholeness. This is a sourcebook, a starting point for handling brokenness with hard work and hope. This resource is also suitable for academic classes and workshops, for conferences and trainings.
By the author of Changing Lenses; Transcending: Reflections of Crime Victims; and Doing Life: Reflections of Men and Women Serving Life Sentences.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
On the opposite pole from retributive justice...  Aug 8, 2007
A very short read, clearly stated, and very well worth the hour.

I love these "Little Books." This one brings to mind the Mennonite influences in America, these very same people whom W.E.B. DuBois celebrates in his essay "Atalanta."

What a relief to read about justice that might restore person and place, while accounting for wrongdoing. It is a breath of fresh air to think of something other than fear-based Nixonian "law and order," which is the idea that retribution brings justice. (It never does. Think of Iraq.)

One wonders whether these ideas are discussed in Criminology programs in universities across our country.
