Furman takes a handson approach to helping readers succeed at scholarly writing and publishing. Using practice guidelines, case examples, and written exercises, he leads readers through each step of the publication process, from idea generation to revision and submission. The result is an invaluable reference book for scholars and practitioners alike.
Restorative justice, with its emphasis on identifying the justice needs of everyone involved in a crime, is helping restore prisoners' sense of humanity while holding them accountable for their actions.
Toews, with years of experience in prison work, shows how these practices can change prison culture and society.
Written for an incarcerated audience, and for all those who work with people in prison, this book also clearly outlines the experiences and needs of this underrepresented part of our society. A title in The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding Series.
