Synopsis:
For nearly a century, the original version of Upton Sinclair's classic novel has remained almost entirely unknown. When it was published in serial form in 1905, it was a full third longer than the censored, commercial edition published in book form the following year. That expurgated commercial edition edited out much of the ethnic flavor of the original, as well as some of the goriest descriptions of the meat-packing industry and much of Sinclair's most pointed social and political commentary. The text of this new edition is as it appeared in the original uncensored edition of 1905. It contains the full 36 chapters as originally published, rather than the 31 of the expurgated edition. A new foreword describes the discovery in the 1980s of the original edition and its subsequent suppression, and a new introduction places the novel in historical context by explaining the pattern of censorship in the shorter commercial edition.

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.
