For some states in Latin America, corruption is not simply an industry, but rather it is part of the political system. This collection studies the nature of corruption and its recent trends through expert contributions from scholars from the region who have diverse scholarly backgrounds, theoretical orientations, and methodologies. Through case studies of countries throughout the Americas, the contributors analyze the links between corruption and organized crime, the main actors involved in corruption, governmental responses to corruption, and the impact that corruption has on governmental institutions and people’s faith in them.
<p><span>Jonathan D. Rosen and Hanna S. Kassab’s edited volume has assembled top scholars and think tank researchers to produce a wide-ranging look at corruption in Latin America. With chapters on democratization, state fragility, and corruption in Mexico, Brazil, Bolivia, Guatemala, Peru, and Colombia, no other volume is as comprehensive an assessment of corruption in the region. As Latin America reels from pandemic and widespread criminal violence, the question of corruption is one policymakers and scholars will need to grapple with. This volume will light the way.</span></p>
<p><span>From Mexico to Brazil, corruption remains deeply entrenched throughout the Americas. Rosen and Kassab have put together a valuable, up-to-date collection of case-studies to help us make sense of the corruption of politics and the politics of corruption in the region.</span></p>
