‘Vicious cycles, where corruption breeds corruption, present special challenges. Nevertheless, some success stories exist. The case studies in this edited volume highlight reforms that created virtuous cycles, where honesty breeds honesty. Nevertheless, the authors caution that reforms may be fragile and incomplete if policies do not shift expectations and behavior sufficiently enough toward a new, less-corrupt status quo.’

'The reader should immediately plunge into the Mungui-Pippidi and Johnston edited volume. In chapters covering Botswana, Chile, Costa Rica, Estonia, Georgia, Qatar, Rwanda, South Korea, Taiwan, and Uruguay, country experts explain how these extraordinarily disparate countries each progressed from a situation where corruption is the norm to one where, if not the exception, it is at least becoming the exception. Readers looking for practical approaches and innovative moves will find much of value.'
