How corrupt is the West? Europe and North America's formal self-perception is one of high standards in public life. And yet, corruption is receiving ever greater attention in the European, American and Canadian press, with high-profile cases affecting both the corporate and political worlds. This book identifies the driving forces behind such cases, particularly the role of political finance, lobbying, the banking system and organised crime. It analyses the sectors which are particularly prone to corruption, including sport, defence and pharmaceuticals. In the course of their investigation, the authors consider why anti-corruption legislation has not been more effective and why there is an increasing discrepancy between regulation and commercial and cultural practice. Are Europe and the US genuinely serious about fighting corruption and if so what measures will be taken to roll it back?

About the Author:

Laurence Cockcroft is a Development Economist. He is a Founder of Transparency International, the global civil society organization against corruption, and was formerly Chairman of its UK chapter. He is the author of Global Corruption: Money, Power and Ethics in the Modern World and Africa’s Way: A Journey from the Past (both I.B.Tauris).No Bio available at this time.

Review:

"Anyone who has a working or other interest in banking and big business in general, organised crime, and sport, besides fraud prevention in particular, can profit from reading one or more chapters. These topics and more are covered in reports on the Transparency International website; but the authors have done a service by bringing together their argument inside book covers...the layout and writing style of the book feel fresh and altogether free of the stodginess that could so easily have attended such a worthy subject. And the quite low price, compared with some books, is welcome too, to encourage non-specialists into buying."

(Mark Rowe, Professional Security Magazine, February 2017)

‘an important work that provides a bedrock of understanding...highly readable...Unmasked comes as at important time, just as the world is turning in on itself. The West should learn the lessons that are described so well in the book and use this difficult period to ensure that the first gear in which it has for so long been engaged is kicked into second and upwards not into reverse.’

(Jeff Kaye, Common Threads 2016-12-10)

“a worthwhile book”

(Denis MacShane, Tribune, 13th January 2017)
