“A top book of the year”
– – –New review, April 2013 in CHOICE (see Reviews)
“Vogl has an engaging writing style, and reading the work is almost like sitting down and having a conversation with him about this increasingly important topic.”
This book is about power. It is essential reading for anyone concerned about improving the governance of nations.
Waging War on Corruption is an insider’s account of extraordinary battles against the abuse of public office by politicians and officials for their personal gain. This is a global journey from the birth of pioneering anti-corruption organization Transparency International in 1993, to the Arab Spring in 2011, as courageous people in scores of countries challenge authority and fight for justice. At stake is nothing less than our global security, the reduction of poverty, the stability of our economic and financial systems, and the cause of freedom and democracy.
