Coventry Lord Mayor’s Committee for Peace and Reconciliation are proud to announce that today we have published paperback and electronic versions of the classic book dealing with restorative justice entitled:
Crime and Accountability: Victim – Offender Mediation in Practice
by Tony F. Marshall and Susan Merry
From 1985 to 1987 the Home Office funded four experimental schemes in mediation and reparation for criminal cases in the UK. One of these was based in the Probation Service in Coventry.
Tony Marshall of the Home Office Research and Planning Unit made arrangements for groups of independent researchers to monitor these schemes and for other researchers to carry out studies on other schemes within the UK.
This book gathers together their substantial empirical research findings into a single coherent narrative. It is much more than a simple history of the progress of the four experimental schemes. It is a fully documented, carefully argued account of some important innovatory work and an eloquent analysis of the concepts and promise of reparation and mediation.
This book has been out of print for many years and those rare copies that come onto the market have cost hundreds or even thousands of pounds. Until today!
The paperback is now available for £25 from Amazon or from all good bookshops by quoting the ISBN 978-1717830241.
A Kindle version of the book is also available from Amazon for £12.
A PDF version is available for £12 directly from the Lord Mayor’s Committee by clicking on the button below.
A hardback version of the book will be available shortly.
All profits from these books will be used to promote Restorative Justice within the city with the aim of making Coventry a Restorative Justice City.
