This volume presents a snapshot of an early but important stage of the restorative community justice movement. The goal is to capture some of the essence of this evolving creative change in the response to crime. Hence, rather than to seek to define and categorize practices and initiatives, the authors examine what are for the most part ongoing and unresolved debates over practice, theory and implementation in the context of core principles of restorative community justice.
