Item description for Legal Aspects of Combating Corruption: The Case of Zambia by K. Mwenda Kenneth...
Poverty-related problems facing Africa are not only overwhelming but are also monumental and worrisome. Some of Africa's poverty problems are self-inflicted and have increasingly become systemically chronic, while others are externally instigated. This book focuses on an aspect of those problems that are principally internal to Africa--the issue of corruption. The book picks out Zambia as a case study. Thus, the efficacy of the legal and institutional framework for fighting corruption in Zambia is examined. As an authoritative text on Zambian jurisprudence, this book brings out critically and analytically incisive legal perspectives. The book also makes reference to closely related developments in other jurisdictions. Weaknesses in the legal and institutional framework in Zambia are identified, and the book spells out proposals to strengthen the framework. "The book is an excellent attempt to set the record straight on the otherwise often confusing present situation in Zambia vis--vis the established legal and institutional mechanisms, which sometimes appear to compete against each other. This seems to work against the very raison d'tre or objective for which they were instituted. The book attempts to provide some solutions on how this could be avoided or overcome. ... It is a highly recommended work for people in other countries, especially developing ones, who are also involved in the fight against corruption to draw lessons from Zambia's attempt to rid itself from this scourge." - Dr. Mpazi Sinjela, LL.B (UNZA), LL.M, JSD (Yale) Dean, WIPO Worldwide Academy; Professor, (Visiting), Lund University and Raoul Wallenberg Institute (Sweden); Co-Director and Professor, Masters Degree Program in Intellectual Property,University of Turin, (Italy)

Book review Dec 3, 2007
"...the book is not just informative to a Zambian audience, but takes on global perspectives by using examples and theoretical constructs that...buttress the analysis of corruption in Zambia... the book approaches the phenomenon of corruption from a multidisciplinary focus. It is holistic and well-rounded in content and outlook. I highly recommend this work. It is well-written and thought-out. It is provocative as well as informative. It is an easy read and is not steeped in jargon." - Ndangwa Noyoo, PhD, Senior Lecturer and Deputy Chair, School of Human and Community Development, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa.
"In this breath of fresh air book, Dr. Kenneth Mwenda provides the reader with a vivid and persuasive analysis of corruption through a first-class treatment of critical issues surrounding corruption and good governance... The book is very well written and benefits from the author's valuable legal knowledge and his international experience of wide ranging legal systems. Dr. Mwenda has succeeded in providing the reader with penetrating insights on a sensitive subject that has, hitherto, not benefited much from published scholarship... This book is an excellent piece of scholarship on matters of corruption and good governance..." - Juliana Nangogo Siwale, PhD, Faculty of Business Studies, Copperbelt University, Zambia.
