Description
The Jungle is a 1906 novel written by the American journalist and novelist Upton Sinclair (1878-1968). Sinclair wrote the novel to portray the lives of immigrants in the United States in Chicago and similar industrialized cities. Many readers were most concerned with his exposure of health violations and unsanitary practices in the American meatpacking industry during the early 20th century, based on an investigation he did for a socialist newspaper. The book depicts working class poverty, the lack of social supports, harsh and unpleasant living and working conditions, and a hopelessness among many workers. These elements are contrasted with the deeply rooted corruption of people in power. Available again after nearly a century of neglect, this edition is fully one-third longer than the common, censored version of Sinclair's novel/expose of the meatpacking industry. This edition contains a great deal of social commentary and ethnic color left out of the commercial edition. It also contains much horrifying detail about meatpacking omitted from the censored edition because it was considered too gruesome.
