9780521618595: Syndromes of Corruption: Wealth, Power, and Democracy

Corruption is a threat to democracy and economic development in many societies. It arises in the ways people pursue, use and exchange wealth and power, and in the strength or weakness of the state, political and social institutions that sustain and restrain those processes. Differences in these factors, Michael Johnston argues, give rise to four major syndromes of corruption: Influence Markets, Elite Cartels, Oligarchs and Clans, and Official Moguls. Johnston uses statistical measures to identify societies in each group, and case studies to show that the expected syndromes do arise.

Book Description:

This book argues that the corruption problems of the world's societies tend to fall into four contrasting syndromes. Beginning with the ways people pursue, use and exchange wealth and power, Michael Johnston examines four kinds of corruption problems in twelve countries: Influence Markets, Elite Cartels, Oligarchs and Clans, and Official Moguls. Different syndromes of corruption require differing reforms; the most important, in the long run, being 'deep democratisation', enabling people to defend their interests by political means.

About the Author:

Michael Johnston is Charles A. Dana Professor of Political Science and Division Director for the Social Sciences, Colgate University, New York.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Corruption is a threat to democracy and economic development in many societies. It arises in the ways people pursue, use and exchange wealth and power, and in the strength or weakness of the state, political and social institutions that sustain and restrain those processes. Differences in these factors, Michael Johnston argues, give rise to four major syndromes of corruption: Influence Markets, Elite Cartels, Oligarchs and Clans, and Official Moguls. In this 2005 book, Johnston uses statistical measures to identify societies in each group, and case studies to show that the expected syndromes do arise. Countries studied include the United States, Japan and Germany (Influence Markets); Italy, Korea and Botswana (Elite Cartels); Russia, the Philippines and Mexico (Oligarchs and Clans); and China, Kenya, and Indonesia (Offical Moguls). A concluding chapter explores reform, emphasising the ways familiar measures should be applied - or withheld, lest they do harm - with an emphasis upon the value of deep democratisation .
