“Frank Vogl has been a leading warrior against corruption, injustice and poverty in the world for many decades. Waging War on Corruption is a provocative and timely account of the linkage of graft, government and corporate corruption and poverty in the world and what should be done about it. As a key person in the creation, leadership, and success of Transparency International, the world’s leading anti-corruption organization, Vogl is one of the most knowledgeable authorities on how to fight graft and corruption throughout the world. Whether it is corrupt local police, graft associated with the international arms trade, or the corrosive actions of political villains throughout the world, Vogl knows the topic from firsthand experience and quality data analysis. Waging War on Corruption should be read by government and corporate leaders, academics, reform activists, journalists, and citizens of the world that want to stop poverty and injustice stemming from graft and corruption.”
