Over 170,000 copies sold! Restorative justice argues that crime destroys people and relationships. Justice, then, must repair and rebuild people and relationships. This is true for men and women that are incarcerated as it is for victims. The more than 2.3 million incarcerated individuals in the United States are often regarded as a throw-away population. While the criminal Over 170,000 copies sold! Restorative justice argues that crime destroys people and relationships. Justice, then, must repair and rebuild people and relationships. This is true for men and women that are incarcerated as it is for victims. The more than 2.3 million incarcerated individuals in the United States are often regarded as a throw-away population. While the criminal-justice system focuses on giving offenders "what they deserve," it does little to restore the needs created by crime or to explore the factors that lead to it. Restorative justice, with its emphasis on identifying the justice needs of everyone involved in a crime, is helping to restore prisoners' sense of humanity while holding them accountable for their actions. In this book, Barb Toews, with years of experience in prison work, shows how people in prison can live restorative-justice principles. She shows how these practices can change prison culture and society. Chapters include; Crime and Criminal Justice Restorative Justice Reconnecting Community Reconnecting Individuals Reconnecting Victims and Their Communities of Care Reconnecting Offenders Reconnecting Offenders’ Families Restorative-Justice Practices Restorative Practices, Justice, and Prison Restorative Living in Prison Written for readers who are incarcerated, and for all those who work with people in prison, this book also clearly outlines the experiences and needs of this under-represented and often overlooked part of our society.

    Barb Toews has done restorative justice work in several Pennsylvania prisons and from that experience writes with a focus on those who are victims of crime, offenders of crime, and families of both. As such she offers some practical guides to those caught up in the criminal legal system and in particular incarceration. After providing a basic overview of RJ principles, she describes Rj as guided by the four values of respect, care, trust, and humility and proceeds to show how those values can be Barb Toews has done restorative justice work in several Pennsylvania prisons and from that experience writes with a focus on those who are victims of crime, offenders of crime, and families of both. As such she offers some practical guides to those caught up in the criminal legal system and in particular incarceration. After providing a basic overview of RJ principles, she describes Rj as guided by the four values of respect, care, trust, and humility and proceeds to show how those values can be actualized for victims and their families, offenders, and the families of offenders. Throughout the book, there are real-life stories that are used to illustrate the way Rj has been used with those who are incarcerated and those victimized by their crimes. As I read the book, I could not help but think of the Rj group in Phoenix prison where I have gotten to know some men seeking to apply Rj to their lives even while they are incarcerated, and its healing power for them.

    Main book that we use at San Quentin every week for our Restorative Justice program. Talks about healing, the importance of maintaining a strong web of relationship, and accountability among others. In our small group discussion, using this book as a guide, one listens to raw, honest and insightful sharing from people inside the circle. Good guide questions.
