This up-to-date resource on restorative justice theory and practice is the literature's most comprehensive and authoritative review of original research in new and contested areas.

Bringing together contributors from across a range of jurisdictions, disciplines and legal traditions, this edited collection provides a concise, but critical review of existing theory and practice in restorative justice. Authors identify key developments, theoretical arguments and new empirical evidence, evaluating their merits and demerits, before turning the reader's attention to further concerns informing and improving the future of restorative justice. Divided into four parts, the Handbook includes papers written by leading scholars on new theory, empirical evidence of implementation, critiques and the future of restorative justice.

This companion is essential reading for scholars of restorative justice, criminology, social theory, psychology, law, human rights and criminal justice, as well as researchers, policymakers, practitioners and campaigners from around the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This international Handbook grounds itself in the present and past in order to look to the future. It sets for itself an important but challenging goal: to reflect the state of restorative justice in the early 21st century, including not only developments in theory and practice, but also its essential debates and challenges. This is an important collection for anyone who wants to understand and grapple with 21st century restorative justice.'

Howard Zehr, Eastern Mennonite University, USA

'This book is perhaps the most comprehensive and certainly the most up-to-date collection on restorative justice. It goes to some topics rarely addressed in earlier volumes ... and embraces a wider range of critiques of restorative justice than most volumes on the subject ... Furthermore, in its geographical coverage, this international Handbook is much broader than older collections ... We are grateful to Theo Gavrielides for bringing so many voices into the conversation. Many inspiring restorative justice leaders in the past have mobilized convening power toward projects of listening, but none more widely nor in more diverse ways than Theo Gavrielides in recent years.'

John Braithwaite, Australian National University

'A decade after the first two "Handbooks of Restorative Justice", this successor comes timely. It is an update of developments in ideas and current debates, and of a great part of the relevant literature. A new generation of authors is emerging. Restorative justice researchers, advocates and critics should have it.'

Lode Walgrave, University of Leuven, Belgium

'In its breadth and depth, this impressive collection represents a new chapter in one of the most remarkable stories in criminal justice of the past century. Restorative justice has grown from the radical, abstract vision of 30 years ago into a fully fledged field of study and practice, worthy of this important international handbook.'

Shadd Maruna, author of Making Good: How Ex-Convicts Reform and Rebuild Their Lives

'This book offers thoughtful and varied approaches to reconciliation and community resilience. As readers, we see that inclusive approaches to justice--involving loved ones, community support systems, and cultural context--offer real hope for renewal and personal peace. This book challenges the punitive aspects of the current criminal justice system, to be sure, but also offers practical tools for transformative leaders to nurture restoration, reformation, and healing. A pathway forward is found through the wisdom of the scholars here, all of whom are committed to restorative justice and a more resilient future.'

Maya Soetoro, University of Hawaii at Manoa, USA
