This is an impressive, thought-provoking and well-written book. It is a valuable contribution on the theory of Restorative thinking, justice and practice. The way in which the authors have cleverly translated theory into practice is both authentic and informative. This really comes alive through the sharing of real inspiring case studies, which allows us to access the theory in a way that translates into every day practice. I would recommend this book to all those wanting to understand Restorative Practice and its true value in society today and the future.

This is a splendid contribution to clarifying what we know and what we do not yet understand about what makes restorative justice fail or succeed. While much research and reflective practice remains to be done to fill great voids in our understanding, this book takes big steps forward. It is at once theoretically sophisticated and practically useful.
