Summary
Drawing on their experience in battling corruption around the world, the authors of this text offer ways to defeat corruption on the local level. They maintain that "preventing corruption can help raise city revenues, improve service delivery, stimulate public confidence and participation, and win elections". The publication gives examples of where this has been achieved, even in the most adverse settings, and how it can be done again. Case studies from New York, Hong Kong, and La Paz, Bolivia, show how seemingly hopeless problems can become the catalysts of successful reform
