This book takes a look at international political leaders and discusses why and how societies demand certain standards of conduct from their leader. It examines what corruption really is and how politicians can become corrupt. Playing a major role in this book are international and historical case studies of noteworthy politicians on both sides of the spectrum-the notably revered and the notably corrupt.
