Students of politics in the new states of Africa and Asia who have adopted this perspective, however, have been struck by the relative weakness both of interest structures to organize demands and of institutionalized channels through which such demands, once organized, might be communicated to decisionmakers. A striking exception, of course, is the legitimate arena of regulatory politics that largely involves contending interpretations of statutes governing private sector activity.

THE POLITICS OF CORRUPTION It was reasonable to struggle, to suffer, perhaps even to die, for a more just, a more compassionate society, but not in a world with no future where, all to soon, the very words "justice," "compassion," "society," "struggle," "evil," would be unheard.

Bill Browder’s journey started on the South Side of Chicago and moved through Stanford Business School to the dog-eat-dog world of hedge fund investing in the 1990s.

Interest in corruption has increased dramatically during the last decade. Corruption in the south has been identified as a major problem and many governments are taking active steps to combat it. Contrary to some expectations, corruption in the north has not declined or disappeared, and there are heightened levels of political and public interest in confronting it. The international donor community has now recognised corruption as a serious obstacle to development. If corruption has always been with us, it has rarely attracted the intensity of global competition it now receives. These four volumes offer a representative, up-to-date and authoritative guide to the literature on corruption. They do not purport to be comprehensive because the literature has expanded so rapidly in the past ten years. Hard choices had to be made about what to exclude and what the balance should be between academic and policy related literature and between theoretical and empirical work. The result is four volumes which contain, in the editor's judgement, the most informative important and influential articles written on corruption in the last third of the twentieth century. This landmark collection will provide students of corruption with a substantial volume of material which shows how the subject has developed and how it is currently understood and explained. Volumes II and III illustrate and explain the scope, incidence and consequences of corruption in a variety of political settings in the developed and developing worlds. Volume IV presents the variety of prescriptions that have been presented as ways of controlling corruption. The Politics of Corruption will be essential reading for policymakers, political scientists, practitioners and lawyers concerned with corruption in both the developed and developing worlds.
