About this item

Corruption in Asia ranges from the venal rent-seeking of local officials to the million-dollar bribes received by corrupt politicians; from excessive position-related consumption to future job offers in the private sector for compliant public servants; from money-laundering to ‘white elephant’ projects that do little more than line the pockets of developers and their political partners.

The Routledge Handbook on Corruption in Asia addresses the theories, issues, and trends in corruption and anticorruption reform that have emerged from this diverse experience. The book will be divided into four major parts: systemic corruption; corruption and development; corruption and society; and controlling corruption: strategies, successes and failures. Chapters will compare and contrast corruption in different social and institutional contexts, consider both successful and unsuccessful attempts to control it and consider what lessons can be drawn from these Asian experiences.
