Hard Graft in Hong Kong: Scandal, Corruption and the Icac

N. J. Lethbridge

Corruption ran rampant in Hong Kong until the establishment of the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) in 1974, the world's largest anti-corruption body. Armed with draconian powers, the Commission quickly scored notable successes in combatting corruption. This book examines the history and nature of corruption in the Colony both before and after the ICAC was established-the cases celebres of the past and their bizarre cast of characters, the riots and the retaliations. Lethbridge also analyzes the impact of the ICAC on the public and private sectors in Hong Kong.
