The book outlines why criminal justice is in need of a new vision, and how restorative justice can meet this need. The authors define restorative justice and its values, explore its foundational underpinnings, and details ways to build restorative justice into policy and practice. The book grew out of a three-year project investigating the theory behind restorative justice, the principles for its application, and the implementation of practical programs to advance the restorative justice vision. This second edition continues with the mission by examining how restorative justice concepts have been applied, and by evaluating the conceptual and practical objections and obstacles to restorative justice in practice.
