John Braithwaite believes in grass-roots democracy, and in this important book he presents a convincing community-based model for civil society... He offers a wide-ranging vision... basing his proposals on extensive research. This book should be read by everyone who is not yet aware of the potential of restorative justice to transform the law and social integration... the text is enlivened by examples in boxes. There is an excellent index. * The Centre for Crime and Justice Studies, CJM No. 49, Autumn 2002 *
As one has come to expect from John Braithwaite, this is an ambitious, provocative and stimulating book that ranges across a wide range of issues... It is rich in empirical examples, and proposes a clear set of reforms clearly inspired by a deep concern for justice, humanitarianism and protection of the 'little people'. Not all will agree with its proposals, but in seeking to argue against them, they will have a formidable opponent. The book deserves to be widely read, and will no doubt be a standard reference point in both criminal justice and regulation. * 22(3) Legal Studies *
