Most widely held works by Center for Public Integrity
Animal underworld : inside America's black market for rare and exotic species by Alan Green( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Animal Underworld, Alan Green and The Center for Public Integrity offer the definitive expose of the sleazy, sometimes illegal trade in exotic - even endangered - species. The book takes us to exotic-animal auctions, where the anonymous high bidders are often notorious dealers, hunting-ranch proprietors, and profit-minded charlatans masquerading as conservationists. We peer inside research laboratories operated by some of the nation's most prestigious universities, which launder diseased monkeys though the same network of breeders and dealers until they finally reach the homes of unsuspecting pet owners. In case after case, Animal Underworld documents exactly what happens after zoos and theme parks unload their "surplus" animals on secretive middlemen who redirect them into the private pet trade. And the book shines an unwanted spotlight on those who profit by exploiting loopholes in the law or by ignoring the law altogether."--Jacket

The Trading game : inside lobbying for the North American Free Trade Agreement( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Center for Public Integrity has determined that from 1989 to the present, Mexican government and business interests have spent at least $25 million in Washington to promote the development and enactment of NAFTA. Mexico has employed a veritable phalanx of Washington law firms, lobbyists, public relations companies, and consultants. This number is conservative ... business community has created a handful of new organizations and tapped some old ones to work on gaining support for the NAFTA. Because the disclosure laws are weak, it is difficult to calculate how much U.S. corporations and trade associations are spending in their effort to gain support for NAFTA ... Canada, despite its traditionally strong lobbying presence in Washington, has not been particularly aggressive or active in its efforts to promote NAFTA ... By any measure, the anti-NAFTA forces have been financially "out-gunned" by the Mexicans and the U.S. business community in this lobbying effort -- because of the poor quality of existing public records and lax disclosure requirements it is impossible to gauge by precisely how much. But this motley collection of environmental and consumer groups, labor unions and conservative business organizations to date have spent a fraction of what NAFTA proponents have spent."--Executive summary
