9781442208148: Heirs of Oppression: Racism and Reparations (Studies in Social, Political, and Legal Philosophy)

Packing his case with moral argument and relevant facts, Angelo Corlett offers the most comprehensive defense to date in favor of reparations for African Americans and American Indians. As Corlett see it, the heirs of oppression are both the descendants of the oppressors and the descendants of their victims. Corlett delves deeply into the philosophically related issues of collective responsibility, forgiveness and apology, and reparations as a human right in ways that no other book or article to date has done. He recommends specific policies and tests the basic arguments of this book with a lengthy chapter considering several objections to the line of reasoning grounding the project.

About the Author:

J. Angelo Corlett is professor of philosophy and ethics at San Diego State University.

Review:

Too many Americans (laypersons and scholars) have historical amnesia when it comes to racial oppression. Angelo Corlett?s new text, Heirs of Oppression, does not suffer this shortcoming. Corlett skillfully draws on some of the best thinking by historians, legal scholars, social scientists, and philosophers to construct a novel theory of reparations in response to a history of racial injustice. The book will stand as the canonical defense of a rights-based account of reparations. Heirs of Oppression is a rich and rewarding book. Anyone working on race, social justice, and political philosophy in general will benefit from it. This book is a must read for anyone who is genuinely interested in issues of moral repair... (Howard McGary, Rutgers University)

This book presents a thorough examination of the idea of reparation and a powerful defense of the case for reparation for Blacks and American Indians. It is also a ringing demonstration that utilitarian, forward looking accounts of corrective justice are indefensible and enfeeble the meaning of reparation. (Bernard R. Boxill, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)
