Description

Transformative Justice illustrates how critical restorative and peacemaking perspectives on crime form the basis of a transformative criminology (a call for personal and institutional transformation of crime and justice). Transformative criminology is explored in terms of theoretical influences, peacemaking and restorative applications, and next steps to be taken in this needs-based and compassionate orientation toward social life.show more

Review quote

Surely few contemporary criminologists have influenced so many others in such profound ways as Richard Quinney. He took a professional and personal path wholly unlike that of any other criminologist, and produced a rich, highly original and often lyricalbody of work. This superb book of essays introduces a new generation of criminology students to the unique and provocative thought of Richard Quinney and demonstrates how he helped shape peacemaking criminology. In an era when over two million Americans are incarcerated, and new repressive and retributive dimensions of criminal justice continue to be introduced, inspiring alternative ways of thinking about crime and justice are needed more than ever. It is difficult to imagine anyone reading this book and not being personally transformed by the experience.. -- David O. Friedrichs, Distinguished University Fellow and Professor of Sociology/Criminal Justice, University of Scranton (Pennsylvania) Building on the rich legacy of Richard Quinney, Transformative Justice challenges traditional criminological thinking and, in so doing, illuminates fresh, humane approaches for alleviating crime and suffering. Critical yet uplifting, utopian yet practical, and sophisticated yet accessible, this volume is both an indispensable addition to any scholar's library and ideal for classroom use. -- Francis T. Cullen, Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus, University of Cincinnati This splendid collection of readings-inspired by Richard Quinney's transformative ideas on crime and criminal justice-is a first-rate testament addressing the one abiding concern about the human spirit that Richard has consistently urged us to personally and collectively confront: How might we live? -- A.
