    All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren is a great example of political corruption.

    I would also suggest Advise and Consent by Allen Drury; also political.

    The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde is a wonderful example of moral corruption.

    The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas has an example of the corruption of people in power who have high ambitions and secrets to keep.

    Les Miserables by Victor Hugo also shows the corruption of justice.

    The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo shows the corruption of religion, especially in the form of one man.

    You could say 1984 by George Orwell shows the potential corruption of society.

    A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens shows some of the corruption that took place during the French Revolution, as do The Scarlet Pimpernel series of books by Baroness Orczy. Dickens' book The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby shows corruption in some of the school systems and Oliver Twist shows the corruption in the so-called "charitable" institutions for the poor.

    There are many more, but I hope this helps.
