This book examines corruption in elite government as well as the political and military spheres of state activity in Africa. It focuses on illegal behaviour on the part of state and non-state actors in state decision-making. The author explores how and why corruption has occurred at the highest levels of the state in African countries. Tangri also addresses anti-corruption efforts, examining why attempts to control elite corruption on the part of domestic institutions and international donors have proven so limited. The book features an extended and detail case study on Uganda together with detailed discussion of elite corruption in several countries, including Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda and South Africa. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of African politics, African political economy, development studies, corruption and government.
