Helen Miles and Peter Raynor add something utterly distinctive to the literature of criminology, law and society in this book. They tell the story ofa rather restorative system of justice on Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands, that survives today after 800 years. Narrative and quantitative data are deftly woven together in the book to document this contemporary story, its history, and its relevance to criminological theory, particularly the theory of restorative justice. The authors are to be congratulated on such a lively book. It is a challenging accomplishment that delivers a unique and instructive perspective.
