"In this chapter I focus specifically on the use of monetary or material reparatons as a strategy of moral regeneration, especially after war. Since material reparative claims are essentially moral claims for transfers of material resources from one party to another, it is useful to ask what moral interests or purposes related to the larger project of moral regeneration can ground these claims."
