Corruption and other similar types of offences are pernicious in nature. In the present poor socio-economic climate, the emergence of resources to help in the fight against such types of actions is to be appreciated even more. This book is one of such resources. Its contribution to the legal understanding of corruption/bribery is immense. * Rhonson Salim, Journal of Commonwealth Law and Legal Education * This book enables practitioners to handle any aspect of a corruption case by providing them with detailed analysis of the international efforts to combat corruption, and the legal developments taking place in key jurisdictions and regions covered by UN, EU, OECD, the Commonwealth, as well as important regions initiatives. * Asad Jamal, Journal of Law and Social Research * This book seeks to fill an important gap in the literature by bringing together, in one source, a wide range of primary and secondary legislation along with international treaties and other documents. As well as considering UK and ECHR law the book draws upon a vast amount of international literature and laws, recognising that corruption has little regard for national borders. * Andrew Keogh, Crimeline, May 2006 * This book fills a large gap and will, I predict, prove to be a valuable tool for those bent on attacking an evil that, if unchecked, can infect the life of a nation * Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers, former President of the UK Supreme Court * Reviews from previous edition I have described earlier editions of Corruption as 'indispensible'. For this edition, I make the logical point: it would be irresponsible for it not to be within reach of any professional adviser. * Jeremy Carver, CBE * This worthy manual on bribery and corruption is a must for a practitioner's toolbox, but it is also precisely the type of practical book that public officials and advanced students should use. For all its theoretical foundations, law is at its core an applied profession and this book can inform and teach its subject with grace and - in places - even eloquence. * Saamir Nizam, The British Journal of White Collar Crime * In the less than two decades for which this work has been in existence, it has carved out a niche for itself as arguably the most authoritative source of information and guidance on what is becoming an increasingly complex area of law. * Dr Venkat Iyer, The Commonwealth Lawyer (December 2017) *
