"Global Corruption: Money, Power and Ethics in the Modern World." Laurence Cockcroft. I.B. Tauris. August 2012. --- Corruption has played a pivotal role in sustaining appallingly high levels of poverty in many developing countries, particularly in relation to the deficient provision of basic services such as education and healthcare. In Global Corruption, Laurence Cockcroft attempts to identify the main drivers of corruption worldwide and analyse current efforts to control them. The author’s experience and knowledge make this book an informative and highly readable guide to corruption operating at all levels of global society, finds Ainsley Elbra.
