Evgenii Dainov,director of the CSP, writes in its preface: "Without democracy - i.e. without transparency in decision-making and without public control on decision-makers - development is not possible. Corruption thrives exactly where the light of publicity does not reach."
The reader contains a number of texts which provide an answer to the questions of the nature of the concept of "political corruption", its unfavorable consequences on society, etc. The problems of corruption against the background of parliamentary practice in the western countries, and in Great Britain and the USA above all, are specifically discussed. A separate section is devoted to the transition to market economy in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
