For years the Koch brothers have spent their time and influence “freeing American business from the grip of government” (as detailed by Jane Mayer in The New Yorker magazine). How and why does an affluent minority appear to be running everything in our democratic society? Christopher Leonard’s book Kochland: The Secret History of Koch Industries and Corporate Power in America (Simon & Schuster, 2019), reveals how the Koch brothers spent tens of millions of dollars on a well-planned program of political structure, building it from the ground up. This single volume documents the essence of how driven and focused power can take over with little oversight, and how capitalism bows to the almighty dollar in the hands of a family with a mission.
