In his critically-acclaimed book Waging War on Corruption: Inside the Movement Fighting the Abuse of Power, author Frank Vogl sheds light on the extent of corruption and explores what private citizens and governments are doing to turn the tide against this destructive trend.

Frank experienced his first real brush with corruption in 1974 during the Watergate scandal, the same year that he arrived in Washington D.C. to work as the U.S. Economics Correspondent for the Times of London. Later, as the Director of Information and Public Affairs at the World Bank from 1981-1990, he realized that civic engagement and activism was the real answer to combating corruption.
