This book is an exhaustive study of the face of corruption in Indian polity and the role of a lone crusader like Anna Hazare in cleaning it up. It traces the history of various abortive attempts to frame a strong Anti- corruption bill that could deter people occupying public offices from polluting the domain of democratic governance in India. Against this backdrop, it highlights the exasperation of the civil society with the clumsy attempts of public personalities to frame, and at times to block the birth, of such a law. It etches out the contours of Anna Hazare's attempts to forge this angst of the civil society into a powerful popular movement to force law makers to understand the urgency of introducing such a bill in the Parliament. The book also takes a panoramic view of corruption.
