About Dark Money
by Jane Mayer:
Jane Mayer’s Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right
tells the fascinating and troubling story of how a small group of activist billionaires has come to exert an enormous influence on American politics. By using their wealth to gain effective control of the Republican Party, Charles and David Koch have tied it to a conservative agenda that furthers their own business interests.
Drawing on five years of carefully documented research, Jane Mayer, an investigative journalist and New Yorker
staff writer, covers the family history of the Koch brothers and their decades-long journey from the fringes of right-wing politics to the very center of political power. Her message offers implicit warning about how anonymous, unlimited funding threatens to turn American politics into a government run by a few.
