Opis produktu

Christopher Leonard is a business reporter whose work has appeared in :The Washington Post :The Wall Street Journal :Fortune and :Bloomberg Businessweek. He is the critically acclaimed author of the New York Times bestseller Kochland which won the J. Anthony Lukas WorkinProgress Award and The Meat Racket.Shortlisted for the 2019 Financial Times & McKinsey Business Book of the YearJust as Steve Coll told the story of globalisation through ExxonMobil and Andrew Ross Sorkin told the story of Wall Street excess through Too Big to Fail Christopher Leonard&rsquo:s Kochland uses the extraordinary account of how the biggest private company in the world became that big to tell the story of modern corporate America.
 :'Kochland :is a dazzling feat of investigative reporting and epic narrative writing a tour de force that takes the reader deep inside the rise of a vastly powerful family corporation that has come to influence American workers markets elections :and the very ideas debated in our public square. Leonard&rsquo:s work is fair and meticulous even as it reveals the Kochs as industrial :Citizens Kane :of our time.''Christopher Leonard&rsquo:s visionary decadespanning and heartrending investigation into the Koch Empire is indispensable not just for understanding the rise of corporate power in America but for understanding America itself. Leonard&rsquo:s book will take its place alongside Chernow&rsquo:s Titan and Coll&rsquo:s Private Empire as one of the great accounts of American capitalism.''Christopher Leonard&rsquo:s Kochland is the kind of book that doesn&rsquo:t come along that often &ndash: a mindblowing feat of reporting about a highly secretive organisation. What&rsquo:s even more amazing is that it seems destined to further convince both sides about the righteousness of their point of view. Those who believe in unfettered freemarket capitalism will find much to feast on while those concerned with the corrosive effects of growth at all costs will find more than enough to gorge on as well. And if the one side will see promise while the other sees peril both should be able to agree on what this story is really about which is power &ndash: and a terrifying amount of it at that.''Christopher Leonard has produced an investigative feat: a hugely readable entirely original magisterial work on one of the most important subjects of our time &ndash: the weirdly cultish terrifyingly successful empire built allbut invisibly by the billionaire sphinx Charles Koch.'&lsquo:A landmark book....A massively reported deep dive into the unparalleled corporate industrial giant Koch Industries....This impressively researched and wellrendered book also serves as a biography of Charles Koch with Leonard providing an evenhanded treatment of the tycoon. Leonard's work is on par with Steve Coll's Private Empire and even Ida Tarbell's enduring classic The History of the Standard Oil Company.&rsquo:&lsquo:Leonard&rsquo:s superb i
