Recognizing that the quality of governance is a crucial factor in the overall development of a country, experts on government ethics and law enforcement examine the principles that need to be applied to create more effective and efficient governments. While focusing on the approaches adopted by the City of New York, case studies from around the world are also given.

As the essays make clear, it is difficult to over estimate the importance of authorities to set proper ethical standards and regulations while operating on the basis of transparency, predictability, and accountability. An important resource for scholars, researchers, and policy makers involved with public administration issues.

    Joining together to battle a common foe

    I realize that some may feel that my comments are somewhat selfserving as a contributing author to this book. But my comments are based on the 20 years that I've been a solder in the battle to control corruption in government. This is the first book that I know of that faces the reality that corruption is a global problem, and as such requires a global effort to respond to it. The contributors to this book have combined a tremendous amount of knowledge which if used properly can make a difference in the fight. I invite everyone to join the fight, begin by reading this book. If you like, I am available to answer questions concerning the chapters which I submitted. Thank you.
