Apologia politica; states & their apologies by proxy. (reprint, 2006)

Negash, Girma.

Lexington Books


183 pages




This is a paperbound reprint of a 2006 book. 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.
