Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Offering a nuanced, historically grounded, and critical perspective, Politics and the Past presents a multidisciplinary exploration of the growing public controversy over reparations for historical injustices. In addition to broad theoretical and philosophical reflections, leading scholars discuss the politics of reparations in specific countries and regions, including the United States, France, Latin America, Japan, Canada, and Rwanda. All readers working or teaching in the fields of transitional justice, the politics of memory, and social movements will find this book a rich and provocative contribution to understanding a phenomenon that has become crucial to contemporary global politics.

Book News Annotation:

Thirteen chapters explore sociological and historical issues of reparations from a theoretical perspective and offer explorations of specific historical situations such as African American calls for reparations and pressure on the Japanese government to address injustices committed during World War II. Presented by Torpey (sociology and European studies, U. of British Columbia, Canada) the essays also consider wider issues of the changing relationship between law and history as reflected by the spread of reparations politics.
