Corruption in Contemporary Politics PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Corruption in Contemporary Politics free pdf Political corruption has recently emerged as a key new area in the study of advanced industrial nations. The wave of corruption scandals since the 1990s has made it apparent that not only is the phenomenon more visible than it has been in the past, but also that its sheer scale in some countries has had a significant effect on the functioning of political institutions. This development has led political scientists to become increasingly aware that in order to understand the way in which democratic countries govern themselves, a thorough understanding is needed of the various aspects of political corruption. What are its causes, dynamics and consequences? How are the authorities attempting to combat corruption? Corruption in Contemporary Politics explores the significance of the phenomenon for contemporary Western democracies, as well as for the new democracies of Eastern Europe, for the European Union and at the international level.
