there are other readings but I’ll leave that to you, if you feel you need to do more then please do so!!! BUT THE ONES ABOVE ARE COMPULSURY, I NEED THEM MENTIONED PLEASE!
I also ned case studies, please include case studies of corruption especially from East asia and sub saharan Africa but anywhere is fine with me, I think 5-8 case studiesmentioned briefly are sufficient.
I also need a bibliography please, and footnotes, just a few.
If you could mention a couple of theories that would be brilliant also, I don’t know which but my lecturer says I need at least one. Any development studies corruption related theory:)
