Changing Lenses
By

Rating
Does the criminal justice system actually help victims and offenders? What does justice look like for those who have been harmed? For those who have done harm? Twenty-five years after it was first published, Changing Lenses by Howard Zehr remains the classic text of the restorative justice field. Now with valuable author updates on the changing landscape of restorative justice and a new section of resources for practitioners and teachers, Changing Lenses offers a framework for understanding crime, injury, accountability, and healing from a restorative perspective. Uncovering widespread assumptions about crime, the courts, retributive justice, and the legal process, Changing Lenses offers provocative new paradigms and proven alternatives for public policy and judicial reform. What's New in the Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Edition:
  • Author updates of terminology, paradigms, and recommended reading
  • Foreword by restorative justice practitioner Sujatha Baliga
  • New resources for teachers, facilitators, and practitioners

Reviews

"This book will change how you think about wrongdoing and justice and mercy."--Leymah Gbowee, winner of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize (06/10/2015) "This book will get you thinking in new ways. It's the best book on criminal justice I have ever read. Profound and thoughtful, yet written in plain language." --Jim Mustin, founder, Family and Corrections Network (06/01/2015) "If you read only one thing on crime and justice issues, read this. If you plan to read nothing on crime and justice . . . then change your mind and read this. I have a shelf of books on these issues but this is my favorite." --Arthur P. Boers, associate professor of pastoral theology"Tyndale Seminary" (06/01/2015) "Now that our nation is finally beginning to come to terms with the immorality and irrationality of our criminal injustice system, I hope that we will reread Howard Zehr's classic text, Changing Lenses, and accept his challenge to reimagine what justice ought to look like." --Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow (06/01/2015) "Maybe one day we'll integrate some of the principles of civil law into criminal justice, as Howard Zehr advises in his book Changing Lenses."--in Dead Man Walking --Sister Helen Prejean, C.S.J. (04/13/1990)
