Despite the growth in literature on political corruption, contributions from field research are still exiguous. This book provides a timely and much needed addition to current research, bridging the gap and providing an innovative approach to the study of corruption and integrity in public administration. The volume contributors provide insights from eight different countries, all drawing on extensive fieldwork data and following ethnographic methodologies. The topics discussed in this book include: the role of anti-corruption legislation; organizational change and integrity; party corruption; socio-cultural dimensions of corruption; gift-exchange; and clientelism. Analyzing these topics comparatively, the volume concludes that in countries where public perception of corruption is high, citizens are well aware of the generalized damage of these practices and the loss of trust they cause for public administrations. On the other hand, corruption in public administration takes place following patterns that mirror some of the fundamental social and cultural features that characterize interactions among citizens and institutions. Scholars and students from fields including public policy, public administration, sociology and anthropology will find this book to be of use to their research and studies. It will also be of interest to policy makers internationally and public sector practitioners.

Poltical corruption has traditionally been presented as phenomenon characteristic of developing countries, authoritarian regime, or societies in which the value system favoured tacit patrimony and clientism. Recently, however, the thesis of an inverse correlation between corruption and economic and political development has been frequently and convincingly challenged. Countries with a long democratic tradition, such as the USA, France, Belgium and Italy, have all experienced a combination of headline-grabbing scandals and smaller-scale cases of misappropriation. Corruption increasingly appears a problem common to most, if not all democracies. In this text, primary research on the more conspicuous Italian case, combined with a cross-national comparison based on a secondary analysis of corruption in democratic systems, is used to develop a model to analyze corruption as a network of illegal exchanges. The authors explore in great detail the structure of that network, by examining both the characteristics of the actors who directly engage in the corruption and the resources they exchange.

"Grand" corruption, generally used to define corruption amongst the top political elite, has drawn increasing attention from academics and policy makers during recent years. Our understanding of the causes and mechanisms of this type of corruption, however, falls short of its importance and consequences. This volume provides theoretical analysis of economic and political conditions that allow "grand" corruption to survive as well as case studies and empirical analysis that supports the theoretical models used.
