            An inspiring true story about unwavering belief in humanity and an urgent call to free those buried alive by America's unjust legal system--from a gifted young lawyer whose journey marks the emergence of a powerful new voice in the movement to transform the system. Brittany K. Ba...rnett was only a law student when she came across the case that would change her life forever--that of Sharanda Jones, single mother, business owner and, like Brittany, black daughter of the rural South. A victim of America's ruthless and devastating war on drugs, Sharanda had been torn from the arms of her young daughter and was serving a life sentence without parole--all for a first-time drug offense. In Sharanda, Brittany saw haunting echoes of own life, both as the daughter of a formerly incarcerated mother and the one-time girlfriend of an abusive drug dealer. As she studied Sharanda's case, a system slowly came into focus: one where widespread racial injustice forms the core of our country's addiction to incarceration. Moved by Sharanda's plight, Brittany began to work towards her freedom. This had never been the plan. Bright and ambitious, Brittany was already a successful accountant with her sights set on a high-powered future in corporate law. But Sharanda's case opened the door to a harrowing journey through the criminal justice system, in which people could be locked up for life under misguided appeals for law and order. Driven by the realization that her clients' fates could have easily been her own, Brittany soon found herself on a quest to unlock the human potential of those our society has forgotten how to see. Living a double life, she moved billion dollar corporate deals by day, and by night worked pro bono to free Sharanda and others in near-impossible legal battles. Ultimately, her journey transformed her understanding of injustice in the courts, of genius languishing behind bars, and the very definition of freedom itself. A Knock at Midnight is Brittany's riveting, inspir

            Restorative Justice Practice

            There has been a surge of interest in restorative justice by practitioners and academics, but it remains an elusive term and in many ways means something different to the different people who engage with it. These differences emerge across a variety of settings, such as populatio...n, crime type and setting. Though programs operating the under the umbrella term of Restorative Justice may share a similar philosophy, they may follow different paths to achieve their goals. This book critically evaluates what restorative justice means today in its various different contexts and examines how the current state of research succeeds or fails in capturing the true state of the art. Written by experts in the field, Restorative Justice Practice broadens the field of debate and considers practice in areas such as gendered and sexual violence and post-conflict justice both inside and outside of the western world.

            Our justice system, once the envy of the world, is in a state of cardiac arrest. Crime has risen to record levels; serious violence, including knife crime, drug-related behaviour and gang activity are out of control. Social media and the internet are fuelling criminal activity by... providing places for criminals to operate and influence young people. In this book one of the UK's leading criminal defence barristers, Chris Daw QC, provides an insider's view of the justice system - complete with fascinating real-life accounts - and proposes radical solutions to some of the biggest challenges it now faces. After a brief introduction and outline of the history of justice in the UK and abroad, Chris presents his manifesto for the twenty-first century: he examines the use of prisons, both in the UK and the US on Alabama's 'Death Row'; he argues passionately for the legalization of drugs to destroy the criminal networks who traffic in their supply; he speaks to young people who are the perpetrators and victims of crime, delving into youth crime and the treatment of young offenders, and he examines the role of the internet as the new frontier of organised criminal activity. Finally, he asks us to move beyond the binary of 'good and evil', to adopt a more pragmatic and humane approach to justice - one that could allow Britain to have the lowest crime rate on Earth.
