Has the fundamental shift in Mexico's political system away from single-party authoritarian rule had any impact on the pattern of corruption that has plagued the country for years? Is there less or more corruption today? Have different types of corruption emerged? If so, why? Stephen Morris addresses these questions, comprehensively exploring how the changes of the past decade - political, structural, institutional, and even cultural - have affected the scope, nature, and perception of political corruption in Mexico. More broadly, his analysis sheds new light on the impact of democratization on political corruption, the conditions that make effective reform possible, and the limits of an institutional approach to understanding the corruption equation.show more

Review quote

"A very important contribution.... This rigorous exploration of corruption in Mexico also provides ample empirical evidence and strong theoretical insights about the relationship between democratic governance and political accountability." - David A. Shirk, University of San Diego "A truly comprehensive study of corruption in Mexico. Not only does it provide the reader with a wealth of information, but it also inserts the Mexican case within a broader theoretical debate." - Luigi Manzetti, Southern Methodist University"show more
