Description:

This book views peacemaking as a broad, encompassing process that is expressed in many different shapes and forms. It blends ancient-wisdom traditions, peacemaking criminology, and restorative justice principles as a way of intervening with offenders in both institutional and community-based settings. Philosophical and spiritual contexts for peacemaking are presented that form a foundation for understanding the potential for peacemaking in criminological thought, the criminal justice system, and society in general. This book is about personal and institutional transformation. It is designed to view peacemaking as a broad, encompassing process that, while grounded in ancient philosophical and spiritual traditions, is expressed in many different shapes and forms. Boxed inserts and discussion questions support the text.
