Persons interested in the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act will likely also be interested in this book by Stewart Deming.  It is available at the ABA webstore at www.abanet.org/abastore.  I know that it has been used (quite successfully) by at least one law school for a class on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
