Racist Symbols & Reparations: Philosophical Reflections on Vestiges of the American Civil War

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers (1998)
In this book, George Schedler offers moral and legal perspectives on two legacies of the Civil War: the adoption of the Confederate flag by Southern states and the question of African American reparations. Schedler's analysis of reparations focuses on the principle that whatever the enslaved would have earned and enjoyed had they not been enslaved should determine compensation
