If we are to trust politicians, we must establish ways of holding them to account for corruption. This book asks why political misconduct has not been more effectively combatted to date and how it should be tackled in future Analyses the application of the offence of misconduct in public office to personal corruption in politics in England and Wales Advocates broader remedies for corruption, setting out the circumstances in which it may be best to prevent corruption or seek restitution of benefits wrongly received, rather than using the criminal law to punish wrongdoing Provides an intellectual history of the offence of misconduct in office, an area previously neglected by mainstream criminal law theory
