The Handbook on the Geographies of Corruption is a comprehensive overview of corruption, exploring the immense variation of corruption among nations, and how this reflects levels of wealth, the centralization of power, colonial legacies, and different national cultures. In this Handbook, Barney Warf brings together a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collection of original new chapters from established researchers and leading academics to examine corruption from a spatial perspective. The Handbook opens with a series of thematic chapters on the causes and consequences of corruption, its geography, the connection between corruption and gender, and the role of e-government in mitigating current corruption issues. Further chapters offer a series of national case studies on countries including Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, Turkey, Russia, Pakistan, China, Indonesia, Ukraine, Bangladesh, and the Philippines from which to draw lessons. This Handbook will be a valuable read for human geography scholars and corruption researchers, wishing to gain a more in-depth understanding of how and why corruption levels differ across the world. Practitioners concerned with combatting corruption would also greatly benefit from reading this given its real-world insights.

'Overall this Handbook is, in a word, excellent. Warf et al. have made a significant contribution to the literature and succeeded in crafting an indispensable resource for scholars of corruption in almost every country.' -- Sven Daniel Wolfe, Eurasian Geography and Economics 'Corruption occurs at multiple scales and in different forms. The 21 chapters by international scholars examine corruption and e-government, development, and gender, with accounts of 16 countries/regions including China, Russia, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, Indonesia, Pakistan, the Arab World, and Central Asia. A timely and insightful book for seminars, workshops, and policymakers.' -- Stanley D. Brunn, University of Kentucky, US 'In this important book Barney Warf has assembled an impressive array of chapters on the intricacies of corruption in its many forms across the globe. These chapters, empirically rich and conceptually sophisticated, open up new ground that is long overdue. Finally, this crucial topic gets a nuanced, robust airing that social scientists and policy analysts will deeply appreciate.' -- David Wilson, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, US
