After a decade on the ground in Afghanistan, Sarah Chayes turned to focus her thinking and efforts on the fundamental insight she had gained through those years: that corruption may lie at the root of the most significant crises the world over. Her book "Thieves of State: Why Corruption Threatens Global Security" won the 2016 L.A. Times Book Prize. In "On Corruption in America -- And What Is at Stake" she applies the same unflinching research and reasoning to her own beloved country.
