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 author of :The Meat Racket :and :Kochland which won the J. Anthony Lukas WorkinProgress Award.&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: :Kirkus Reviews
&lsquo:Leonard&rsquo:s superb investigations and evenhanded cleareyed reportage stand out....American capitalism at its most successful and domineering is at the center of this sweeping history of a muchvilified company.&rsquo: :Publishers Weekly
&lsquo:Leonard&rsquo:s intricately developed and extensively researched history of the Koch empire is a colossal corporate biography that sheds important light on this closely guarded enterprise while simultaneously scrutinizing the nefarious underpinnings of American economic policies and practices.&rsquo: :Booklist

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 mindb
