About this book

By exploring the anti-corruption strategies in six countries, this book is the first detailed, cross-national analysis on techniques to address corruption. It highlights the importance of understanding that quality of governance is critical to tackling corruption and that only when this link is truly appreciated can inroads into corruption be made.

Reviews

The international anti-corruption movement has arrived at a crossroads. Despite a generation's hard work by dedicated and courageous people we have seen many more frustrating outcomes than clear successes. It is difficult to argue that the global system or the societies within it have become significantly less corrupt; indeed, despite innovative attempts at measurement there is no way of knowing overall trends. Global elites increasingly operate everywhere while being held accountable nowhere their powers and privileges often written into laws and policies. In Corruption, Anti-Corruption, and Governance Daniel Hough offers a long-overdue assessment of the corruption control movement and its results. Beginning with the movement's origins, and tracing the evolution of thinking about governance, Hough employs six paired case studies to arrive at a substantively rich assessment of the state of corruption control. The result is not one more 'toolkit' for reformers, but a telling analysis of where the reform movement has been, and what it needs to do in years to come.
