Synopsis: Political corruption has recently emerged as a key new area in the study of advanced industrial nations. The wave of corruption scandals since the 1990s has made it apparent that not only is the phenomenon more visible than it has been in the past, but also that its sheer scale in some countries has had a significant effect on the functioning of political institutions. This development has led political scientists to become increasingly aware that in order to understand the way in which democratic countries govern themselves, a thorough understanding is needed of the various aspects of political corruption. What are its causes, dynamics and consequences? How are the authorities attempting to combat corruption? Corruption in Contemporary Politics explores the significance of the phenomenon for contemporary Western democracies, as well as for the new democracies of Eastern Europe, for the European Union and at the international level.
Book Description: '...the book clearly reflects two major shifts in perspective that characterize this new strand of literture on corruption...The great strength of this book lies in the wealth of experiences and proposals it offers, making it clear that there are no easy answers for the problems.' - Liliane Karlinger, Environment and Planning
