It explores the use of prototype road maps to identify corruption
vulnerabilities, suggests corresponding 'warning signals,' and
proposes operationally useful remedial measures in each of several
selected sectors and for a selected sampleof cross cutting public
sector functions that are particularlyprone to corruption and that are
critical to sector performance.Numerous technical experts have come
together in this effort to develop an operationally useful approach to
diagnosing and tackling corruption. The Many Faces of Corruption
isan invaluable reference for policymakers, practitioners,
andresearchers engaged in the business of development.
