    Abstract

    Making politics more open and transparent is one of the main challenges for civil society. In Curtailing Corruption: People Power for Accountability and Justice , Beyerle puts together an interesting text that describes and analyses dif- ferent approaches to fight corruption around the globe. To that end, she uses a mixed methods approach and a variety of case studies. From Latin America to Asia, this book sharply dis sects social movements and civil society strategies to abolish corruption in different social contexts. Going beyond geographic bound- aries, the author lays out an important analysis on theories of new social move- ments.
