About the Book
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.

From the Publisher
Considering the abysmal track record of orthodox drug rehabilitation programs, whereby a ten percent abstinence rate after one year of treatment is regarded as successful, a responsible introduction to viable alternative methodologies brings hope and promise along with new insight and information. Medical anthropologist H. K. Heggenhougen reviews the growing body of literature that describes and assesses traditional interventions rooted in other cultures (Buddhist, Malay, Native American, etc.), as well as therapies advanced through alternative achievements like acupuncture, biofeedback, and meditation. Besides exploring their salient features and evaluating their efficacy, Dr. Heggenhougen comments authoritatively on their transferability to conventional American and European addiction programs, and supplies an annotated bibliography for use as an independent resource by theoreticians and practitioners in the fields of detoxification and rehabilitation. Exposure to the cross-cultural perspective, replete with potential for creative adaptation, enriches our understanding as it expands exponentially our repertoire of treatment options.
