Critical Acclaim

This authoritative, yet concise and practical Encyclopedia brings all the sub-specialties of the field together in one place. Both newcomers and longtime specialists alike will want to have this book at their fingertips.’
– Pascale Helene Dubois, Independent International Anti-Corruption Advisor, USA/Belgium
