Critics’ Reviews

Rarely does a book fulfil all of its promises, but, in this case, Restorative Justice: Adults and Emerging Practice succeeds. It is provocative, insightful and challenging. Read full review… – Susan L Miller, Current Issues in Criminal Justice, Nov 2014

This collection provides an important corrective to one major bias of the restorative justice literature, which is a predominant focus on youth justice, to the neglect of restorative justice for adult offenders. It also highlights the strong links between academia and the practice of restorative justice. Complementing insightful new scholarly contributions are practitioners who write with a real passion and depth of experience. This book is timely, given that the evidence for effectiveness and justice seems at least as strong with adults. – John Braithwaite, Australian National University

This welcome volume grasps the nettle for future directions in the practice of restorative justice, especially in relation to adults. The contributors are some of the best scholars on this topic in Australasia and they bring their expertise to bear in a thoughtful and comprehensive discussion. This volume recognises the huge potential of restorative justice for expansion to the world of adult crime and provides a strong basis for bold policy changes in this direction. – Heather Strang, University of Cambridge, Australian National University
