Review: Civilising criminal justice: An international restorative justice agenda for penal reform
by Eric Assur A diverse group of European and United Kingdom scholars have collaborated to produce a fine collection of eighteen chapters or articles regarding restorative justice in nations other than the United States. The book is international from cover to cover with an authorship reflecting far more of the world than North American readers may be familiar with. The editors are from the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. An Australian, himself a well-regarded leader in the Restorative Justice (R.J.) field, offers a thought provoking Forward. Most readers will probably agree that this international collection is a “fine start to a project of civilising criminal justice that will challenge our grandchildren.”

Review: Art in Action: Expressive Arts Therapy and Social Change
By Marian Liebmann It’s refreshing to see a book which contains many surprising and good techniques using our ‘right brains’ and the whole of ourselves. We spend too much time on ‘left-brain’ activities, planning, writing notes and reports, working out logistics, spending hours in front of our computer screens. This book is about another way of experiencing the world, and of helping many others in the process. This collection of essays seems to be an outcome of collaboration between staff of Lesley University (in Cambridge, USA and Israel) and the European Graduate School in Switzerland, the only master’s degree course in Expressive Arts in Conflict Transformation and Peacebuilding. In fact many of the authors are involved in both institutions.

Book Review: The Spiritual Roots of Restorative Justice
Key restorative justice programs have had their roots in religious or spiritual communities. Victim-offender mediation got its North American start thanks to members of the Mennonite community. Circles were adapted from Native American and First Nations practices. Conferencing was derived from the traditions of the Maori people in New Zealand. While these programs have often been "secularized" for use outside those communities, it is useful to reflect on the spiritual roots of restorative justice. That is the subject of a new book, reviewed in this edition.
