The Levine Book Prize committee of the Governance Journal awarded special recognition to Corruption and Reform in India: Public Services in the Digital Age (Cambridge University Press, 2012), by Jennifer Bussell, who recently joined the Goldman School faculty.
“This book masterfully draws on both qualitative and quantitative methods to explore the implementation of state-level, IT-based service centers in India," writes the selection committee. "The book convincingly shows how the nature of corruption in each Indian state interacts with political patterns to produce particular policy outcomes. It is a must-read for students of corruption.”
"I am honored to receive this recognition from IPSA's Research Committee on Governance," says Professor Bussell. "I hope that the book will be of use to scholars interested in both corruption and Indian politics, as well as practitioners and promoters of reform in public service delivery more generally."
