From Virtue to Venality

Corruption in the City

Peter Jones

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Examines whether corruption has increased or decreased, or simply re-emerged after being temporarily suppressed
  • Explores why the city is the transaction point for corrupt dealings, and asks whether Glasgow is Britain's equivalent of Chicago
  • Presents scandals such as those involving John Poulson and Shirley Porter as temporary anxieties that fail to generate reform
  • Straightforward introduction deals with definitions and causal theories of corruption
  • Uses new techniques to measure the incidence of corruption
