Critical Issues

First Edition
Edited by:

May 2003 | 238 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
'The book embodies a timely collection of restorative justice topics and is well structured with some of the most learned authorities in the field' - Magistrate

'The team which teaches the Open University's Crime Order and Social Control course has long been publishing teaching materials which are gratefully purloined by colleagues elsewhere for use in their own courses. In producing this book they have gone much further than this: not only have they selected an indispensable range of mainly previously published readings, they have also placed them in a theoretical context and succinctly summarised the debates which are taking place and some which need to take place but as yet are in their infancy' - Vista

Restorative Justice brings together key international writings that trace the development of restorative justice from its diverse beginnings to current global policies and practices. The collection is constructed around the following themes:the theoretical origins of restorative justice; the key principles and substantive practices associated with restorative justice; controversial issues and debates; and future directions and possibilities. A substantial editorial introduction will provide readers with an authorative guide to the critical issues facing restorative justice at the beginning of the 21st century.

This book should be viewed as key contribution to the restorative justice debate, its discussions are central as to whether Restorative Justice is the way ahead for justice, addressing the harm caused by crime, involving victim and offender.
