If you've not already seen it, you might want to look at Lawrence W. Sherman's chapter, "Two Protestant Ethics and the Spirit of Restoration," in Heather Strang and John Braithwaite, eds., Restorative Justice and Civil Society (2001). It's a nice (sympathetic) critique of some Quaker ideas on restorative justice.

And I share your "big interest" in dreams of justice (in this case, one type of such, namely, global distributive justice):

Incidentally, Hicks' Peaceable Kingdom happens (appropriately enough) to grace the cover of one of the better works of contemporary political theory: Will Kymlicka's Multicultural Citizenship: A Liberal Theory of Minority Rights (1995).


Hi Patrick -- haven't seen Sherman's article. I'll read it. Sounds like something I'd be interest in.
