How Corrupt is Britain?
Pluto Press, 2015 - Political Science - 198 pages
A straight-forward question that many people are now asking: how corrupt is Britain?
In this book, a wide range of leading commentators and campaigners offer a series of troubling answers. Unflinchingly facing the corruption in British public life, they show that it is no longer tenable to assume that this is something that happens 'elsewhere'; corrupt practices are revealed across a wide range of our most venerated institutions - from local government to big business. The contributors call for fundamental changes in the social relationships that create our society.
How Corrupt is Britain? brings together some of the most important scholarship on the question of corruption in contemporary British society. It will be an important resource for both dedicated campaigners against corruption and informed citizens.
