Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
1906 bestseller shockingly reveals intolerable labor practices and unsanitary working conditions in the Chicago stockyards as it tells the brutally grim story of a Slavic family that emigrates to America full of optimism but soon descends into numbing poverty, moral degradation, and despair. A fiercely realistic American classic that will haunt readers long after they've finished the last page.

Review:
This book is perfect for AP classes and is often selected for inclusion on the AP exam. The notes, reading pointers, and vocabulary in this addition will also help students at a lower reading level get the most out of these classics.

From the Publisher

Review:
?Practically alone among the American writers of his generation,? wrote Edmund Wilson, ?[Sinclair] put to the American public the fundamental questions raised by capitalism in such a way that they could not escape them.? When it was first published in 1906, The Jungle exposed the inhumane conditions of Chicago?s stockyards and the laborer?s struggle against industry and ?wage slavery.? It was an immediate bestseller and led to new regulations that forever changed workers? rights and the meatpacking industry. A direct descendant of Dickens?s Hard Times, it remains the most influential workingman?s novel in American literature.
