The work is not about petty corruption, the small bribe paid to the underpaid police officer to avoid being booked for a minor traffic violation, but addresses the corruption of the powerful.

Elites rely on corruption, and particularly in repressive regimes the practice is the most important tool of criminal governance. The author utilizes the concept of the protection racket developed by Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno from the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory to explain the links between political, economic, and societal elites in Fujimoris Peru such as the military, political parties, multinational corporations, or conservative groups within the Catholic Church.
