Bernadette Atuahene interviewed over one hundred and fifty South Africans who participated in the nation's land restitution program. In this book she presents her research into the successes and failures of South Africa's attempts at "dignity restoration", a unique fusion of reparations with restorative justice that seeks to restore property while also confronting the underlying dehumanization, infantilization, and political exclusion that enabled the injustice.

Bernadette Atuahene is Professor of Law at Chicago-Kent College of Law, Illinois Institute of Technology, and a faculty member of the American Bar Foundation.
