Editorial Reviews


"Vineeta Yadav's book is full of brilliant insights, fascinating paradoxes, and compelling empirical narratives about corruption and lobbying Brazil, India, and other developing countries. Counter-intuitively, Yadav finds that strong political parties in developing country democracies can lead firms' lobbying efforts to tend toward political corruption. Yadav's book is essential reading for scholars, policy makers, and managers who do business in emerging markets."--Rawi Abdelal, Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School

"Yadav argues, against conventional wisdom, that developing countries with strong legislative parties are more rather than less likely to succumb to lobbying pressure and systemic corruption. Based on extensive original data on the incidence and effects of corporate lobbying in India and Brazil as well as large-n data analysis of many other countries, Yadav's work is substantively important and technically sophisticated. This will be indispensable reading for scholars of the political economy of development."--Frances Rosenbluth, Professor of Political Science, Yale University

"...careful empirical work...."--Richard N. Cooper, Foreign Affairs

"Densely packed, meticulously researched, and carefully argued, this is an importantly subtle contribution to the understanding of corruption and developing democracy. ...Highly recommended."--CHOICE
