“Waging War on Corruption provides a much-needed retrospective, and overall assessment, concerning the contemporary anti-corruption movement. Transparency International and related groups seemingly came out of nowhere a generation ago, but Frank Vogl shows how long-term influences shaped anti-corruption agendas and strategies. Today, political events, new technology, and the movement’s own successes in shifting the global agenda are creating fresh challenges. Vogl’s book offers an essential discussion of those dynamics, and of what those concerned with justice and accountability must do in the years to come.”
