Folded Lies is a useful book, but the reader should be warned that it is not an easy book. The so-called New Haven School has often been accused of writing in-comprehensible prose. I believe that charge to be overstated. The myth system consists, in essence, of the values which the society publicly espouses, while the operational code represents acceptable deviations from the myth system necessary to "get things done.

Spanish Translation, ¿Remedios Contra la Corrupción? (Cohecho, cruzadas y reformas), Fondo de Cultura Económica, Mexico, 1981; republished in its Series Biblioteca Joven, 1984. International Commercial Arbitration (with Laurence Craig, William Park and Jan Paulsson, Foundation Press, 2009). 62801/?tag prabook0b-20. In Systems of Control in International Adjudication and Arbitration, W. Michael Reisman, one of America's foremost scholars and practitioners of international law, examines the controls that govern arbitration-a method of alternative, private, and relatively unsupervised dispute resolution-and shows how these controls have broken down.

Examines the dynamics and function of price-fixing, bribery, and payments to foreign governments as part of recognized corporate business practices, drawing attention to the lawfulness of these actions and the harmful ramifications of anti-bribery campaigns
This is a very thoughtful book. Corruption and bribery in particular are complex subjects that tend to by simplified by moralistic judgments. Reisman impressive legal knowledge brings to light the blurry edges between reciprocal altruism, Fukuyama's term, and bribery. The Legal forms and the way the power players of the system operate are not necessarily in sink. The ideal metaphysic view for majorities may differ from the practice of the few. The reality and what society aspirations are evolve and one takes time to catch up with the other. It is not a conspiracy or Machiavelli arrangement among the powerful, although sometimes there is some of that. Changing the way people, corporations of governments operate, how they reach agreements and make deals, is harder to change than imposing a rational well though new regulation. Stopping bribery, although commendable, requires profound coordinated changes in the way a market operates. Thus, it is easier to enact legislation supported by a discussion from the high moral ground, than reaching a consensus among all market participants, particularly when there are some that are profiting from the current ways of doing things.
the cathegories developed by Michael Reisman, myrhical norms and operational codes are still the most compelling normatice description of a complex process: obedience to the law and accepted lack od enforcement for some individuals.
"Michael Reisman's book is the first serious comprehensive analysis of the phenomenon of business bribery in all its manifestations. It goes beyond the recent wave of popular books that have simply dramatized the extent to which bribery has become institutionalized. The significance of Folded Lies is in its very credible -- and persuasive -- analysis and synthesis of the dynamics of the bribery phenomenon and the societal reactions it will inevitably precipitate. Folded Lies should be important reading for the business community, policy makers, lawyers, social scientists, and the general reader."

Author of Theft of the City

"This is a major contribution to the analysis of one type of white-collar crime. It lifts the veil on 'jurisprudence in the shadows' and analyzes a type of decision pathology. More than that -- the author places the timely topic of bribery in the context of timeless principles of myth systems and operational codes . . . .An incisive inquiry at a fundamental level of the policy alternatives for business and social order."
