An assumption is not being made that the controls reflect in any direct way changes in the underlying nature of corrupt activities (whatever that might mean and however much may be known about them).

Rather, they reflect changes in the way that business and political behaviour is conceptualized and the drive to do something about this behaviour, for symbolic and/or instrumental purposes of different kinds. This book explores: continuities and shifts in the definition (in law and practice) of corruption- the socioeconomic-political-pressure group influences around these communities and shifts, for example, what is called the politics of corruption- some assessment of the impact that such shifts have made/are likely to make upon corrupt behaviour - a deeply problematic term- and an analysis of what this process as a whole tells us about the nature of the polity (and its criminal justice system) within which the shifts and continuities of control are occurring.

The primary orientation is not the forms of corrupt behaviour or their explanation, but forms and causes which are salient to socio-legal reaction and its effects.
