Corrupt Circles: A History of Unbound Graft in Peru
Copub.: Johns Hopkins University Press. As Peru prosecutes former president Alberto Fujimori and other alleged participants in state crimes, the country is turning a keener eye to corruption, attacking the longstanding culture of impunity. The book provides a historical view of Peruvian corruption, dating back to the country's colonial period. Quinoz demonstrates how corruption has been deeply embedded and costly for Peru's state institutions, hindering the country's development, and how this corruption aided by the readiness of both Peruvians and the international community to turn a blind eye.Order this book from The Johns Hopkins University Press here.
