What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“The most important contribution of this book is its emphasis on institutions: the latter are very important in the fight against corruption. No anti-corruption project can succeed without effective and fully functioning institutions.” (John Mukum Mbaku, Distinguished Professor of Economics, Weber State University, USA)

“Prof. Hope has produced another significant book on Africa. It’s a must read for all those concerned with, or interested in, corruption and governance issues on the continent.” (Bornwell C. Chikulo, Professor of Development Studies, North-West University, South Africa)
