The Secret History of Koch Industries

Author Christopher Leonard talks about his new book Kochland: The Secret History of Koch Industries and Corporate Power in America. Unknown to most, Koch Industries and the Koch Industries companies touch nearly every aspect of modern life. Chris Leonard tells us how he used the Koch brothers companies to reveal the even bigger story of modern corporate America. The challenge though was the private nature and culture of secrecy that exists in Koch Industries. To unearth the facts that make Kochland so eye-opening, Christopher Leonard made many trips to Wichita, Kansas, home of the Koch Industries headquarters to interview sources, not to mention dozens of other Koch Industries locations he visited to find the scope and shape of the full company.
