Item description for Political Corruption in Transition: A Sceptic's Handbook by Stephen Kotkin & Andras Sajo...
This book, a wide-ranging comparative review of corruption during the transition from communism, is a strong statement against corruption. It is labelled, however, a skeptic`s handbook because its treatment is entirely different from the usual preaching and excommunications. The real strength of the seventeen essays lies in their shared skepticism about superficial approach, including about external pressures on transitions states, like the much cited CPI (corruption perception index) of Transparency International.
