Dear Colleagues [Jessica Tillipman’s note said]:
I am currently preparing the syllabus for my fall anti-corruption course and wondered if I could bother you for some recommendations regarding your favorite anti-corruption, compliance, anti-bribery, etc. resources on the internet (in addition to the FCPA Blog and Tom Fox’s Blog, of course).
At the beginning of the semester, we provide our students with a list of resources to help them as they select their paper topics and I wonder if you have any recommendations for this list.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I like the primary source material.
In this case it would be the FCPA itself (here), the legislative history (here), the opinion procedure releases (here), the Lay Person’s Guide to FCPA (pdf here), the Organizational Guidelines under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines (Chapter 8, Part B) (here), and some of the deferred and non-prosecution agreements (the exhibits usually deal with compliance) (here).
I also like the U.S. Attorneys Manual. You have to search through the sections to find what you’re looking for. But there are some great entries with lots of case citations.

In addition to the FCPA Blog, Tom Fox’s site, and the DOJ primary source materials Dick recommended:
1) Miller &Chevalier authors the U.S. chapter to the “Getting the Deal Through” Anti-Corruption Regulation publication. Here is a pdf of the 2012 chapter.
2) Here is a collection of additional sites and resources I thought you might find helpful:

Well, who can top Marc’s list? I won’t even try, but I would add one item: Westlaw now has an FCPA tab. It’s available only on Westlaw Classic (and not Westlaw Next). From the main screen, find in the upper right hand corner “add a tab” and follow the prompts to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act tab. It’s got a number of good resources organized there.
