Promotional Information

Like The Rockefellers and The Ford Family, The Koch Brothers are one of America's wealthiest and politically-active families yet they have never been the subject of a major biography. Influenced by their father's radical libertarianism, Charles and David have built the family's oil and cattle empire into the second largest private corporation in America and their secretive backing of conservative causes, right-wing media and global-warming-denying science has prompted liberals to dub them 'The Kochtopus."

About the Author

Daniel Schulman is a senior editor in the Washington bureau Mother Jones, and a founding member of the magazine's investigative journalism team.

Reviews

"Sons of Wichita feels as close to the truth as anyone is likely to get for a long time to come."--Financial Times
"[A] riveting biography...fair-minded and inquisitive. Schulman offers carefully observed details that help flesh out our image of the men whose money has so dramatically remade our politics, revealing much about their motives as well as the demons that haunt them."--The Washington Post
"[C]ompulsively readable... a bias-free book that illuminates two of the most influential figures on the American landscape while telling a remarkable, if cautionary, tale about money, power, and the bonds of brotherhood."--Booklist
"A straightforward, evenhanded and often riveting assessment."--Kirkus
"[I]f you care about politics and the ultimately far more powerful cultural direction of these United States...[this book] is mandatory reading."--Nick Gillespie, The Daily Beast
"[A] complex story of epic sibling rivalry, with important political dimensions."--Publishers Weekly
