The book presents the state of the art in studying the causes of corruption from a comparative perspective. Leading scholars in the field of corruption analysis shed light on the issue of corruption from different theoretical perspectives. Understanding how different theories define, conceptualize, and eventually deduce policy recommendations will amplify our understanding of the complexity of this social phenomenon and illustrate the spectrum of possibilities to deal with it analytically as well as practically.

Review:

This volume offers a comparative survey of competing theories of causes of corruption from different schools of thought and analysis and different disciplines. (Reference & Research Book News)

The Good Cause focuses on a range of social scientific approaches to the study of corruption, written by academics prominent in these forms of investigation... will doubtlessly have an enormous utility to future researchers in the field. (Public Administration)

The whole world of corruption has been transformed over the past few decades. It is far more complex and complicated to fathom than ever before. An understanding of the causes of modern corruption has to reflect these developments. (Public Integrity)
