Long time readers of PLN know that I have an interest in Restorative Justice. I have reviewed and recommended several publications on the topic. I bring your attention now to a very well-produced and affordable booklet that offers an introduction to the subject.
The Campaign for Equity -- Restorative Justice (CERJ),in conjunction with CURE-NY, has produced a 24-page primer on Restorative Justice. it's pages are packed with a wealth of criminal justice statistics and information -- well worth the effort to obtain a copy, even if you have little interest in Restorative Justice.
The booklet contains information and statistics about drug treatment and its effectiveness as an alternative to imprisonment. Also included are statistics and info supportive of prison education. All of the information is supported by an extensive bibliography of source material cited.
All in all, you'd be hard pressed to find as much quality crimina1 justice information in as small a package anywhere else.
Copies of the booklet are available for $1 (10 for $5, 50 for $10). Mail orders with your name, address info, and quantity desired to: Kim Pathways; 16 Young Road; Katonah, NY 10536 (email cureny @idsi.net). Copies will be mailed to you along with an invoice.
