    Abstract:
    This chapter provides a striking account of corruption in a state that saw itself as both free from corruption and as a clear exponent of the modern belief in the end of corruption; namely, the communist German Democratic Republic (GDR). It discusses the official ideology and the anticorruption laws that were in place but also three distinct types of corruption that were present in the GDR. Ultimately, the chapter shows how the image of anticorruption was maintained by, on the one hand, accommodating to certain privileges and overlooking the clear misconduct of a part of the communist elite and, on the other hand, by concealment of the actual evidence of corruption. This chapter is presented here in chinese language.
