This comprehensive guide to restorative justice is fully available for reading at Google Books! It provides an accessible introduction to the philosophy of restorative justice and its practical application in a wide range of settings. Drawing on many years of experience of work in victim support, probation, mediation, and restorative practices, Marian Liebmann uses pertinent case examples to illustrate how restorative justice can be used effectively to work with crime and its effects. Also included are sections on confronting bullying in schools, dealing with sexual and racial violence, tackling antisocial behavior, and community reconciliation after war. Whether in the context of families, schools, communities, criminal justice or prisons, the author argues that restorative justice is a 'seamless philosophy' which can be applied flexibly to meet diverse needs. Liebmann provides an international outlook, examining how restorative justice is practiced around the world.
