Reviews and Awards
"In this illuminating book, Fritz Heimann and Mark Pieth do not only capture the magnitude of corruption and the evolution of the resistance against it, they also reveal the personal lessons they learned while being at the heartbeat of the anti-corruption agenda. They take us with them on a journey behind the façade of massive international institutions and grant us a glance at the inner workings of key policy makers and leading non-governmental organizations." From the Foreword by Jimmy Carter "
"Fritz Heimann and Mark Pieth have combined their vast wisdom, brilliant legal skills, and practical experience to write this important book Confronting Corruption. They were actively involved when I founded Transparency International (TI), and I worked closely with both as our transparency concept achieved world-wide usage. This book captures in a vivid language the highlights and complexities of corruption issues, as well as the successes and occasional backsliding of the global fight against the cancer of corruption. Prof. Dr. Peter Eigen, Founder of Transparency International "
"Two decades ago, I met two amazing gentlemen: Mark Pieth, a renowned professor of criminal law and Fritz Heimann, a top grade corporate lawyer. Mark brought to the fight against corruption his scientific expertise of the phenomenon and Fritz, a deep understanding of the corporate world. Here, they provide a rare insight into the most corrosive human behavior of our time: corruption.

"A fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at the global anti-corruption movement by two practical idealists who were present at the creation and who have been anchors of the effort. A comprehensive and insightful overview of the accomplishments and frustrations of advocacy with realistic proposals for reform." Prof. Dr. Susan Rose-Ackermann, Yale Law School "
"Fritz Heiman and Mark Pieth have been pillars in the global struggle against corruption and international commercial bribery. This book provides a knowledgeable and thoughtful assessment from individuals who not only have thought deeply about these challenges, but also have been in the thick of the battle.
