About this book


This book looks at political corruption in Latin American and Europe from both an historical and a contemporary angle. The approach is therefore comparative and interdisciplinary, bringing together scholars from history, political science, anthropology, sociology and economics. In addition to general essays, this book includes chapters analysing political corruption in individual countries: Italy, Spain, France, Great Britain, Chile, Brazil, Venezuela, Paraguay and Mexico.
