Folded Lies: Bribery, Crusades and Reforms. By W. Michael Reisman, New York: Free Press, 1978. Pp. ix, 269. $12.95.

Professor Reisman has written a truly enjoyable book, "enjoyable" in the sense of forcing one to think about the basic conflicts underlying a series of recent events, the news reports of which have been marked more often by breadth of coverage than by depth of analysis. Folded Lies has the further, and not unrelated, virtue of not being solely about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977f (FCPA or Act) but rather about bribery in general. As such, it provides a framework for continuing examination of the interpretation and application of the Act.
