The tale of the Bechtel family dynasty is a classic American business story. After the building of the Hoover Dam, the family and its eponymous company would go on to build the world. Today Bechtel is one of the largest privately held corporations in the world, enriched and empowered by a long history of government contracts and the privatization of public works, made possible by an unprecedented revolving door between its San Francisco headquarters and Washington. Like all stories of empire building, the rise of Bechtel presents a complex and riveting narrative. In The Profiteers, Denton exposes Bechtel's secret world and one of the biggest business and political stories of our time.
