Description - Corruption and Development by Mark Robinson

The articles assembled in this volume offer a fresh approach to analysing the problem of corruption in developing countries and the k means to tackle the phenomenon. They draw on a wide variety of theoretical traditions and are interdisciplinary in their approach, reflecting the fact that corruption cannot be understood through the lens of economic or political analysis alone. A wealth of empirical material is assembled from a range of developing countries, both in the form of case studies and detailed cross-national analysis, to examine these questions. The message conveyed by this book is that corruption is a complex, multi-faceted phenomenon which pervades all societies to varying degrees. It is not amenable to quick-fix solutions but requires a complementary response at a variety of levels through governments, aid agencies and NGOs working together to tackle the root causes of the problem and mitigate its corrosive developmental consequences. This book will appeal to acedemic and policy-makers concerned with problems of goverance and public management in developing countries, as well as specialists working on corruption and designing anti-corruption strategies.
