Boolshelf: Justice Reform

Out now from The New Press, Start Here: A Road Map to Reducing Mass Incarceration articulates a new approach to justice reform that emphasizes the value of community engagement and human dignity. Written by Greg Berman and Julian Adler of the Center for Court Innovation, the book highlights programs that have succeeded in reducing neighborhood crime, enhancing public trust in justice, and changing the life trajectories of those caught up in the criminal justice system.

"Our vision of criminal justice reform is based on equal parts pragmatism and idealism," the authors write. "We believe that, wherever feasible, criminal justice policy should be guided by the better angels of our nature." Proceeds from the book will support the Center for Court Innovation's reform efforts.
