About the Author

Sarah Chayes lived in Afghanistan for a decade and served as special assistant to the US chief of defense, Admiral Mike Mullen. For five years she researched corruption networks across the world at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Her book 'Thieves of State' won the LA Times Book Prize.


'Sweeping and remarkably clear-eyed ... Chayes's research dazzles. This intricate and impressive exposé will galvanise readers to take action.'
*Publishers Weekly*

'Few people know the methods and strategies of the corrupt like Sarah Chayes. After combating corruption in the developing world, she now takes aim at the United States, where conflicts of interest, bribery and collusion are not an anomaly but a commonplace reality. Every person concerned about corruption should read this book.'
*Frederik Obermaier, investigative journalist and co-author of 'The Panama Papers: Breaking the Story of How the Rich and Powerful Hide Their Money'*

'Both right and left revile "the swamp", but Sarah Chayes is the first to provide a gripping and lucid--to say nothing of brave--account of how sophisticated self-dealing networks of every stripe are rigging the rules and poisoning our politics. If you want to save America, this might just be the most important book to read now.'
*Nancy MacLean, author of 'Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America'*

' "Everybody Knows" exposes America's dark secret hiding in plain sight: corruption. While the United States rightly lectures the world about the perils of corruption, Chayes explains how America's own corrupt practices have been legalised and normalised. An important book for understanding the pervasive rot of American corruption--and how to remove it.'
*Brian Klaas, author of 'The Despot's Apprentice: Donald Trump's Attack on Democracy'*
