Political Corruption
Robert Harris
Price: $ 31.95

In Politics and Corruption, Robert Harris argues that any analysis of political corruption focusing on the nation-state or on miscreant individuals has been rendered obsolete by developments in globalized finance and international organized crime. Rather poltical corruption involves the extension of the normal processes of politics into illegitimate areas of activity where self-serving individuals are able to exploit the gaps between different parts of a country's political system, or between different political systems on the international stage. In light of these considerations the book explores political corruption: its economic and transnational dimensions, as well as its links with organized crime, money laundering, people smuggling and the drug trade.
