Green looks at the evolution of the Canadian criminal justice system, and contrasts the values on which it is based with Aboriginal concepts of justice. He introduces alternatives being developed in Aboriginal communities including sentencing circles, elder and community sentencing panels, sentence advisory committees, and community mediation projects. At the heart of the book are case studies of several communities, which Green uses to analyze the successes of and challenges to the innovative sentencing approaches evolving in Aboriginal communities across the country. Those concerned with criminal justice will find this book an invaluable resource.
