Product Description


Stephen Winter brings together transitional, redress, and liberal political theory in an illuminating approach to understanding state redress as a specifically political project of normative legitimation. This smartly written and incisively argued book sets a new bar for transitional, reparative, and historical justice theory. It is a tour de force of synoptic analysis and close consideration of specific cases of official redress in stable democracies. Margaret Urban Walker, Donald J. Schuenke Chair in Philosophy, Philosophy Department, Marquette University, USA This remarkable book draws together theories of transitional justice, legitimacy and political authority to explain why redress for historical injustices in Australia, Canada, the United States and New Zealand counts as transitional justice. Winter combines a description of how these states have dealt with historical injustices with a persuasive account of why wrongs of states require redress. Janna Thompson, Faculty of Humainities and Social Sciences, Latrobe University, Australia
