Anne-Marie McAlinden is Lecturer in the School of Law at Queen's University Belfast.
'McAlinden's book makes a courageous and closely argued case for the application of restorative justice to sexual offenders. Her exploration of the growing literature on restorative justice and the management of risk is closely integrated with obvious legal knowledge and expertise - particularly her knowledge of the law in relation to sexual offending. In a scholarly and sensitive fashion, McAlinden takes the theory of restorative justice forward into a distinctly new and important area, and in so doing makes a significant contribution to the field of criminology in general and the management of risk in particular...a highly original contribution to the discipline of criminology. It is the first British book to make a fearless and highly persuasive case for a very different approach to sexual offenders - one, if adopted, that may well result in lower rates of re-offending.'
