a cohesive and stimulating investigation of the shifting perceptions of corruption in moral, civic and political terms and the strategies and alternative modes of public behaviour that have been attempted to deal with this ongoing problem of modern societies of all political hues.
The insights are many and readers will no doubt find their own amid this rich array of case studies; but arguably the greatest service performed by this book is to bring some much needed analytical pressure to bear on the divide between the modern, post-1800 era and that which went before. This is also where the book will be of most interest to historians and scholars of liberalism, which, however we might define it, is distinguished by a commitment to open andaccountable government and the enactment of public office in a disinterested fashion, above the fray of financial, personal and political interests-at least in theory.
the merit of a work that has managed to gather such a large number of specialists working on such different periods in history. All the more so when the result is a fresh perspective on the study of corruption.
the analytical and conceptual rigour of the volume's chapters is high. This book provides a profound and rich historical analysis of a topical problem.
offers unique detail and insights ... Highly recommended.
