Diplomacy and Apologies

The idea of one nation publicly apologizing to another is a relatively recent development in international diplomacy. Robert Siegel talks about it with Elazar Barkan, chair of the cultural studies department at Claremont Graduate University and author of The Guilt of Nations: Restitution and Negotiating Historical Injustices. (4:00) The Guilt of Nations is published by W.W. Norton & Company.
