The Corruption Notebooks: 25 Investigative Journalists Report on Abuses of Power in Their Home Country, is a hard-hitting collection of essays by leading investigative journalists around the world on what happens when the public is either uninformed about abuses of power or incapable of doing anything about it.
Many of the 25 contributing journalists have been threatened, jailed, and in some cases had their offices firebombed. All have spent years fearlessly uncovering government and corporate scandal in their home countries. Their unique and comprehensive essays reveal how no democracy, including the United States, is immune from the scourge of corruption.
Published by the Center for Public Integrity, The Corruption Notebooks is essential for anyone seeking to understand the insidious impact of corruption on societies around the world. The book is a companion to the Center's groundbreaking online report Global Integrity: An Investigative Report Tracking Corruption, Openness and Accountability in 25 countries.
