   schema:reviewBody ""Corruption in Africa makes a significant contribution to the study of the impacts and eradication of corruption in African societies. John Mukum Mbaku offers a comprehensive analysis of the causes of public malfeasance in African countries and provides a number of practical and effective policy options for positive change. Mbaku demonstrates the destructive relationship between corruption and the abrogation of economic freedoms and entrepreneurship, a system that has clearly left Africa as one of the most deprived regions in the world. Utilizing the tools of public choice theory, the author emphasizes the important role that institutions have in corruption control and recommends reconstructive democratic constitutions as the most effective means of development."--Jacket." ;
