The Handbook of Restorative Justice is a collection of original, cutting-edge essays that offer an insightful and critical assessment of the theory, principles and practices of restorative justice around the globe. This much-awaited volume is a response to the cry of students, scholars and practitioners of restorative justice, for a comprehensive resource about a practice that is radically transforming the way the human community responds to loss, trauma and harm.

Its diverse essays not only explore the various methods of responding nonviolently to harms-done by persons, groups, global corporations and nation-states, but also examine the dimensions of restorative justice in relation to criminology, victimology, traumatology and feminist studies. In addition, they contain prescriptions for how communities might re-structure their family, school and workplace life according to restorative values.

This Handbook is an essential tool for every serious student of criminal, social and restorative justice.

About the Author:

Dennis Sullivan is Adjunct Professor in the School of Criminal Justice at the University of Albany and is founder and director of the Institute for Economic and Restorative Justice.

Larry Tifft is Professor of Sociology in the Department of Sociology at Central Michigan University. His research interests are radical criminology and restorative justice.

Review:

'Dennis Sullivan and Larry Tifft have been inspirational leaders of the paradigm shifts in justice studies toward peacemaking and restorative justice.  This collection manifests the distinctiveness of their long-term project.  There are new and exciting reconceptualizations of criminology, rich historical, global and indigenous perspectives. It is a collection that breaks the mould of American criminology in constructive yet self-critical ways.' - John Braithwaite, Australian National University

'Showcasing the very latest theory and research on restorative justice, this terrific volume is destined to become the major reference work in the field. The Handbook of Restorative Justice also breaks new ground with its truly global discussion of innovative practitioners and programs from around the world. Featuring wide-ranging contributions by renowned experts, the comprehensive and authoritative Handbook will be essential reading for criminologists and practitioners in the field. It will also prove an indispensable reference for other social scientists and students seeking state-of-the-art knowledge on contemporary criminal justice issues.' - Christopher Uggen, University of Minnesota

'A fascinating and informative survey on an essential topic.  While making clear the aims and successes of restorative justice, this book is impeccably honest in also exploring its difficult challenges and limitations.  Restorative justice is not easy, but this book makes clear why and how it is so important.' - Priscilla Hayner, Director, International Policymakers Unit, International Center for Transitional Justice, New York

'The Handbook represents an important contribution to the development of the restorative justice thought. Unlike many books in the area, the discussions are not limited to application of restorative justice within the criminal justice context. On the contrary, the book asserts that restorative justice philosophy has application to every aspect of social life, at every level of human interactions. Many essays offer a more radical vision of restorative justice than mainstream literature in the area does, extending restorative ideas to social justice matters, offering engaging discussions and challenging readers to think critically about the role and the potential of restorative justice.

The book is highly recommended to students of criminal justice, criminology, law, sociology, conflict-resolution and related disciplines, as well as criminal justice practitioners, researchers and policy-makers and anybody with an interest in criminal and social justice issues in contemporary society.' - Margarita Zernova, Restorative Justice Online
