Apologia Politica: States and Their Apologies by Proxy.


Apologia politica; states & their apologies by proxy.

Negash, Girma.

Lexington Books


183 pages




In light of the storm of public apologies for past sins by the Vatican and other governments, Negash (political science, U. of South Caroline-Aiken) asks whether states can successfully apologize to begin with, the extent of political constraints on their apologies, and their moral limits. He proposes an ethic of apology based on a blend of political and moral theories that informs a critical and systematic examination of state apologies.
