Abstract

Josip Kregar’s book The Emergence of Predatory Capitalism
and Corruption gave the author reason for a discussion on the
possibilities of explaining corruption as well as determining its
extent in Croatia and worldwide. Apart from the proposed
historical and sociological debates, the author tests hypotheses
on economic power and the diffusion of corruption, on the role
of “human nature”, i. e. the theory of reciprocal altruism as
explanation for the universal quality of corruption, on the role of
transition in increasing corruption. He also compares the
theories mentioned to data provided by world organizations on
the extent of corruption in specific countries of the world.
