Our professor Neelambar Hatti and Mason Hoadley has been writing a book about understanding corruption

Corruption is a salient feature of human condition in any organized society. When risks are low and the returns high, corruption is almost inevitable. Apart from this, traditional public behaviour comes precariously close to what in the Western Weberian sense might amount to corrupt practices.

The idea of modern division between the public and private office is alien to traditional culture and corruption finds space when this division is not strictly observed.

Seven essays in the present volume cover a range of countries, which include India, South Africa, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, and Indonesia. As the essays unfold themselves, the problem of corruption takes on an added dimension that of a legacy left behind by colonialism.
