Political corruption is a problem as old as society itself. As a fixture of political science and related disciplines, however, it is new and rapidly-developing, having only received very modest coverage until the late 1990s. The recent shattering of the taboo surrounding the discussion of corruption, largely attributed to its re-definition as an economic problem, has resulted in a torrent of new material on the subject. The most important of this has been brought together in this interrogative and authoritative collection. This book, including an original introduction by Professor Bo Rothstein, assembles the best papers in the field into a comprehensive examination of political corruption and will be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the subject.

'Bo Rothstein, one of the world's leading scholars working on the topic of corruption, has put together an outstanding set of articles in this new collection. Drawing on recent research that focuses on the meaning of corruption, its causes, effects, and impacts on democracy, political legitimacy and social justice, as well as on how best to fight it, the chapters in his volume provide the reader with a smorgasbord of key resources - all put into clear context in a typically perceptive introductory chapter. It will undoubtedly become established as a standard work of reference for all those interested in current debates around corruption.' -- Paul M. Heywood, University of Nottingham, UK
