Description - Stories of Transformative Justice by Ruth Morris
Years of working in the area of penal abolition have developed Ruth Morris's thinking on justice issues. In 'Stories of Transformative Justice', she outlines why the current adversarial system of justice fails victims, offenders, their families, and ultimately society in general. Citing stories from Canada, the United States, New Zealand, Australia, and Aboriginal communities around the world, Morris shows there is another path that can transform misery victimisation and punishment into new opportunities for healing and understanding. An inspiring work which proves that 'turning the other cheek' holds the power of transformation.
