''Plutocracy Croatia'' traces the rise of Croatia’s kleptocratic ruling class.

Croatia’s progressing EU accession has raised many questions about the transparency and honesty of the nation’s governance, but reports have been vague and sterile – until now. Through extensive research and interviews with major government insiders, activists, and journalists, Plutocracy Croatia traces the rise of Croatia’s kleptocratic ruling class and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and judiciary.
