Corruption in development deals

The World Bank is banning Macmillan, a British publisher, from taking up its contracts for 6 years, as Macmillan admits making "bribery payments" to secure a deal to print textbooks in South Sudan. This happened during the bidding process in 2008-2009 and Macmillan did not get the contract. Source: Reuters

In 2004, Macmillan published a book titled "Corruption, Politics and Development - The Role of the World Bank".
