The Bribery Act is among the most controversial pieces of legislation of recent years. It creates a comprehensive scheme of bribery offences that will revolutionise courts' and prosecutors' responses to bribery at home or abroad. It will also force big changes to how businesses deal with bribery.

The new edition of The Bribery Act 2010: A Practical Guide will provide the most detailed and up-to-date analysis of this important legislation. It deals with the law in context, covering the general bribery offences, bribery of foreign public officials and the specific bribery offence applicable to businesses alone.
