Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0091472210, Paperback)

Making Good — one of the classic and original works on restorative justice — argues that the real need in restorative justice is for fundamental rethinking, rather than short-term tinkering, with a prison system in an intolerable state of crisis. In this second edition — which also includes a new foreword by one of the UK's leading penal reformers — author Martin Wright demonstrates that neither the conservative idea of deterrence through punishment nor the liberal ideal of rehabilitation has worked in practice. In their place, he proposes the basis for a radical but carefully worked out practical philosophy, which would place the emphasis on the offender making amends to the victim, and society for the damage caused. ò
