MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lorenn Walker and Katherine van Wormer assemble a very contemporary collection of reforms, evidence and critique on the transformation of justice. Its pages are graced with the reflections of many of the deepest thinkers and doers of restorative justice. The book is a wonderful accomplishment that is strewn with so many gems of beautiful thought and beautiful practice. This is an inspiring book for those struggling to seek the heartland of a restorative vision." -- John Braithwaite
"This book offers up-to-date, original scholarship on a variety of restorative justice topics from multiple perspectives and a variety of countries. Its contents should be of interest to scholars, practitioners, and educators alike. Much of the material is on the cutting edge-for example, the detailed descriptions of restorative strategies for situations of school bullying, gendered violence, reentry following incarceration, and priest abuse. -- John Graham
"Restorative Justice Today is a needed contribution that begins the next phase of serious discussion in the RJ field. While sound theory and research remain central to advancement, this contribution provides an outline for expanding and improving practice in a number of settings. The book samples stories of innovative use of restorative justice and describes promising pathways to application in settings from playgrounds to prisons, and across disparate cities and continents." -- Gordon Bazemore, Ph.D.
"It will be a beautiful day in our world where Restorative Justice Today is read by all who work in criminal justice as well as all who are impacted by crime. The book is highly instructive and profoundly validating to the mind and heart in describing how true justice can be achieved. This amazing book underscores how restorative justice can and must be part of the criminal justice fabric and approach as a rule not as an exception." -- Sunny Schwartz
"Restorative Justice Today" is a very well-done, tight collection and contemporary view of the realities and possibilities world-wide for reform, evidence and critique on the transformation of justice. Graduate university programs in Law, Conflict Resolution, Sociology, Criminal Justice, Peace Studies, Indigenous Societies, and many more disciplines may make good use of this book, with its condensed format for chapters and up-to-date international links to experts and practitioners." -- Bruce E. Barnes
