Anticorruption (Kobo eBook)
President Emeritus of the World Peace Foundation and Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Robert I. Rotberg, showcases how to win the ever-raging anticorruption battle, through this guide for citizens and politicians on either side of the aisle.
The phenomenon of corruption has existed since antiquity; from ancient Mesopotamia to our modern-day high-level ethical morass, people have sought a leg up, a shortcut, or an end run to power and influence. In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Robert Rotberg, a recognized authority on governance and international relations, offers a definitive guide to corruption and anticorruption, charting the evolution of corruption and offering recommendations on how to reduce its power and spread. The most important component of anticorruption efforts, he argues, is leadership that is committed to changing dominant political cultures.
