(From the publisher):
Upton Sinclair's The Jungle
is a vivid portrait of life and death in a turn-of-the-century American meat-packing factory. A grim indictment that led to government regulations of the food industry, The Jungle
is Sinclair's extraordinary contribution to literature and social reform.
Originally serialized in socialist journal Appeal to Reason in 1905; first published as a novel in 1906. The novel is five chapters shorter than the original serialized version.
