Bringing together contributions on the nature of corruption in East and Southeast Asia, this edited volume examines the means of limiting and ultimately eliminating corruption at a national and international level. Taking a country by country approach the text explores: *the concept of corruption, now and in the past *recent experiences of Asian countries at the macro and micro-levels *practical local and international measures to constrain corruption. The volume outlines key principles of good governance and the policies and practices essential for their application. As such, it represents an extremely valuable contribution to our understanding of corruption and how to tackle the problem.
