7 The last judgment is of course highly controversial and many patriotic Frenchmen would have denied it. I assume its truth simply for the argument's sake.

20 I am grateful for comments by Timo Airaksinen, Hillel Steiner and participants in a research seminar held at the University of Keele in November 1991. Since this paper was written there has been published Chapman J. W. (ed.), Compensatory Justice, Nomos, XXXIII (New York: New York Univer sity Press, 1991). Like Nomos, XXI (see MDCC, note 12), it sheds much light on some of the issues discussed here and in MDCC.
