Description

2006 marks the one hundredth anniversary of one of the most powerful, provocative, and most enduring proletarian novels ever published in the United States.Upton Sinclair's dramatic and deeply moving story exposed the brutal conditions in the Chicago stockyards at the turn of the nineteenth century and brought into sharp moral focus the apalling odds against which immigrants and other working people struggled for their share of the American dream. Denounced by the conservative press as an un-Ame...rican libel on the meatpacking industry, the book was championed by more progressive thinkers, including then president Theodore Roosevelt, and was a major catalyst to the passing of the Pure Food and Meat Inspection act, which has tremendous impact to this day.Features an introduction from Fast Food Nation author Eric Schlosser and dramatic cover illustrations by graphic artist Charles Burns.Detailed info »« Brief info
