  • Description: This compact and comprehensive title examines anti-bribery and corruption from both the legal and compliance perspectives. It weaves together diverse sources such as case law, congressional materials, law enforcement and regulatory guidance, statements from industry groups, and the author's experience to shape international anti-corruption law and compliance into a cohesive narrative. Key anti-bribery and corruption laws (the FCPA and the UK Bribery Act) and international instruments (the OECD Convention and the UNCAC) are analyzed. The book then provides detailed and practical guidance on how to design and implement effective anti-bribery and corruption programs to comply with applicable law in the real world.
