After several decades working in the field of restorative justice, Paul Redekop concludes that punishment is a major obstacle to healthy societies, families, and schools. Punishment can be so damaging, cruel, and barbaric, especially to children, that it should be replaced with restorative discipline, and societies should move toward a punishment-free justice system.
"Paul Redekop's challenge of punishment in homes, schools, the justice system, and international relations approaches a difficult topic with courage and creativity. He deconstructs our cultural and political rationale justifying the infliction of pain on others 'for their own good.' He offers restorative alternatives that make it possible for us to be active, caring, and reflective." - Liz Elliot, Simon Fraser University
