The Pursuit of Absolute Integrity: How Corruption Control Makes Government Ineffective

Frank Anechiarico

Publisher: University of Chicago PressFormat: Paperback

In this comprehensive and controversial case study of anticorruption efforts, Frank Anechiarico and James B. Jacobs show how the proliferating regulations and oversight mechanisms designed to prevent or root out corruption seriously undermine our ability to govern. By constraining decision makers' discretion, shaping priorities, and causing delays, corruption control—no less than corruption itself—has contributed to the contemporary crisis in public administration.“Anechiarico and Jacobs . . . have pushed aside the claims and posturing by officials and reformers and revealed a critical need to reevaluate just what we have and are doing to public servants, and to the public, in the name of anti-corruption.”—“Citylaw”“A timely and very useful addition to the new debate over corruption and reform.”—Michael Johnston, “American Political Science Review”
