The second edition of Corruption and Government updates Susan
Rose-Ackerman's 1999 book to address emerging issues and to rethink
old questions in light of new data. The book analyzes the research
explosion that accompanied the fall of the Berlin Wall, the
founding of Transparency International, and the World Bank's
decision to give anti-corruption policy a key place on its agenda.
Time has vindicated Rose-Ackerman's emphasis on institutional
reform as the necessary condition for serious progress. The book
deals with routine payoffs and with corruption in contracting and
privatization. It gives special attention to political corruption
and to instruments of accountability. The authors have expanded the
treatment of culture as a source of entrenched corruption and added
chapters on criminal law, organized crime, and post-conflict
societies. The book outlines domestic conditions for reform and
discusses international initiatives - including both explicit
anti-corruption policies and efforts to constrain money laundering.
