Reprinted and with a NEW Preface January 2004. As featured in The Guardian. A truly ground-breaking work. The Relationships Foundation exists to foster relational approaches to social, economic and other problems – including justice issues. A work stemming from the Foundation, Relational Justice has proved a highly successful adjunct to the main work of that organization – to the extent that there is now also a regular Relational Justice Bulletin (contact The Relationships Foundation, 3 Hooper Street, Cambridge CB1 2NZ; 01223 566333; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website – N.B. Waterside Press is not responsible for external links). This influential book – with contributors ranging from the New Zealand judge Fred McElrea to Professor Tony Bottoms of the Cambridge University Institute of Criminology – presents a uniquely refreshing challenge and will appeal to people who prefer non-adversarial, non-conflict and non-argument-laden solutions. ‘The idea of Relational Justice brings to the administration of criminal justice new priorities: the need to treat all those involved in its process with courtesy, consideration and respect. Victims of crime have a particular need for such treatment’: Baroness Faithfull. A book which has established a whole new perspective on criminal justice.
