Corruption is increasingly recognized as a preeminent problem in the developing world. Bribery, extortion, fraud, kickbacks, and collusion have resulted in retarded economies, predator elites, and political instability. In this lively and absorbing book, Robert Klitgaard provides a framework for designing anti-corruption policies, and describes through five case studies how courageous policymakers were able to control corruption.
“A most worthwhile book, both for its insights into anticorruption policies and for the academic debate about more general questions that it will certainly create.”
–American Political Science Review.
"Controlling Corruption is a brilliant book. It is far and away the best work on the subject that I have read and I think the best there is."
—Aaron Wildavsky, University of California, Berkeley
