From Baksheesh to Bribery: Understanding the Global Fight Against Corruption and Graft

Worldwide, governmental anti-corruption efforts have been ramping up like never before. From the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ( FCPA ) to the U.K. Bribery Act and recent Chinese, French, Indonesian, Brazilian, and German anti-bribery legislations, the compliance world has witnessed the fight against corruption rocketing to the top of most law reform and enforcement agendas. As the fight against corruption goes global, practitioners of the compliance, regulatory, and investigative space must understandand-and more importantly navigate-these increasingly complicated and often perilous compliance waters. With that heavy reality in mind, this first-of-its-kind book draws on the real-world experience and expertise possessed by some of the world's leading anti-corruption and anti-bribery practitioners to make meeting that challenge easier. Featuring country-specific chapters and practitioner-focused how to modules, From Baksheesh to Bribery serves as a one-stop shop for practitioners, in-house counsel, compliance personnel, academics, and others who want-and often need-to understand the world's perspective on corruption and the fight against it.
