Justice in reparations: The cost of memory and the value of talk. Kutz, C. Philosophy & Public Affairs, 32(3):277–312, 2004.
abstract   bibtex   
[first paragraph] Central and Eastern Europe's latter-day history has consisted in a number of spectacularly failed experiments in political philosophy. Communism's failure brought with it an important set of lessons; and in the former Soviet Union since 1989, the failure of unbounded capitalism has confirmed some important truths about healthy polities, for example the crucial role played by social trust in civil society, and the importance of a functioning tax and regulatory system. One important set of lessons, however, is yet to be fully distilled. These lessons arise from Central Europe's recent attempts to undo the expropriations and deprivations that occurred during the forcible transformation of peas- ants and bourgeoisie, institutions and individuals, from freeholders in land into unlanded participants in socialism.
