Description
							Conventional wisdom points to exonerations as happy endings in the cases of people who are accused of crimes they did not commit, but the reality of life after exoneration is much more complicated. In Rectify, former innocence project director and journalist Lara Bazelon uses stories of crime victims, exonorees, and advocates to take stock of the massive damage inflicted by wrongful convictions and shows how the centuries-old practice of restorative justice is emerging as a model for reconciliation, healing, and survival. Poignantly written and deeply researched, Rectify challenges the idea of what it means to be a victim of a crime.
