Product description


'...a first-rate analysis. The theoretical essays break new ground. The chapters on France and South Korea as well as the classic cases of Italy and Japan present incisive and fine-grained studies. A superb collection.' Alan S. Zuckerman, Brown University, USA 'Ten top-flight scholars develop a long-overdue analysis of the links and contrasts between ideas - corruption and clientelism - that have too often been treated as synonyms or, in the case of clientelism, ignored. The result is a set of diverse perspectives, some conceptual and others based on illuminating case studies, that will be essential to anyone seeking to understand how corruption and clientelism function in real societies, and how values, social relationships, and political interactions influence both corruption and reform.' Michael Johnston, Colgate University, USA 'Anyone interested in the evolving patterns of clientelism and corruption, and of their interconnections, should read this book. The volume proposes both consolidated and innovative approaches to the study of these phenomena which, collectively, bring the reader up to date with the best scholarly production in this field.' Simona Piattoni, University of Trento, Italy '...there is much of interest in this collection, including case studies on Europe, richly confirming the editor's working hypotheses that clientelism-corruption is no pre-modern throwback but part and parcel of political life...A fascinating approach to political science understandings of corruption-clientelism, a rare example of East Asia-European crossover political research, hopefully this collection will lend to emulation bringing in other case studies and examples.' Journal of Contemporary Asia Publishers
