Designed for a wide readership, this book looks at the problems that have led to the penal crisis. It argues that informed media and public opinion - including much chatter on the Clapham omnibus - has finally ‘turned the corner’ and that the time is ripe for a concerted pragmatic U-turn in criminal justice policy-making based increasingly on well-understood Restorative Justice principles.

The Penal Crisis and the Clapham Omnibus poses questions and tries to give straightforward answers to matters that commonly arise in discussions about Restorative Justice and argues that the idea of resistance from the public to more enlightened approaches to ‘doing justice’ is misplaced.
