The Guilt of Nations: Restitution and Negotiating Historical Injustices
The Guilt of Nations
Restitution and Negotiating Historical Injustices
Paperback      ISBN: 0801868076
Is restitution hegemony or reclaimed rights? Barkan (cultural studies, Claremont Graduate U.) raises the question but doesn't answer it in his examination of a number of attempts to amend historical injustices through official apologies and financial payments. Separate chapters analyze the political, economic, and moral dynamics behind restitution movements related to the European Jews slaughtered by the Nazis; the Japanese traffic of sex slaves; the Russian plunder of Germany as restitution for German plunder; Native American claims on land, human remains, and sacred objects; Hawaiian claims of self determination; the treatment of Australian Aborigines; and the legacy of the slavery of Africans in America. He argues that discourses of restitution are deeply wedded to notions of identity and that restitution can sometimes lock people into seeing themselves as victims. Restitution, although sometimes appropriate, "orders injustices and attempts to rewrite specific wrongs, leaving other social discriminations and prejudices intact." Annotation c.
