"One cannot help but be impressed by the scope of quantitative econometric analysis presented, both within the text and in the appendices. . . . the presence of such analysis is a clear and bold merit of the book. Indeed, it makes it an unparalleled source of information to which a graduate student or a scholar may turn not just for excellent analytical points, but for the results of data analysis as well." - Ararat L. Osipian, Demokratizatsiya
"Eric M. Uslaner presents a statistical but nuanced take on corruption across nations and political groupings...Uslaner makes an effective and well-supported argument." International Law and Politics, April Gu
