In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

To begin, I’d like to extend special thanks to numerous anonymous individuals who risked their standing or job security to connect me with leads, offer guidance, spill dirt, and sneak me into places I perhaps shouldn’t have been. These include one World Bank executive, one member of Congress, one engineer at General Motors, two marketing executives, one former teen celebrity, two political strategists in Washington dc, two military contractors, a high school vice principal, one solar industry executive, one solar sales rep, one mining worker, and three especially helpful security guards. I also extend thanks to those organizations that generously released confidential reports, which I had worked on, so I might draw upon their findings in this very public setting. I appreciate the cooperation from numerous Department of Energy employees, who provided everything from images to insight on internal decisionmaking. This book would not have been possible without brave Acknowledgments xii Acknowledgments individuals from the World Bank, U.S. military, academia, and industry who were involved in whistle-blowing, industrial espionage , and leaks exposing wrongdoings. Their courage reminds us there are rules that are provisional and rules that are not.
