What People are Saying About This

It is conventional wisdom that there has been an explosion of corruption in mainland China in the reform era, with adverse consequences for the legitimacy of the regime. Yet there have been few book-length studies of the topic in the last five years. With its lucid argument and dual focus on Hong Kong and mainland China, Corruption by Design promises to be an important contribution.

John P. Burns

Corruption by Design provides an excellent analysis of how officials in Hong Kong and mainland China have reacted to widespread corruption. Manion argues persuasively that strategies of reform must include enforcement, education, and institutional design. Her work brings together a huge amount of original material on mainland China and it is the most thorough examination of corruption in that country to date. This is significant given the secretive nature of corruption itself and the relative lack of transparency on the mainland.
John P. Burns, University of Hong Kong
