Summary
The Jungle prompted the immediate passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act and launched Upton Sinclair's career as a champion of the working class. This quintessential muckraking novel changed the course of history with its gruesomely detailed depiction of Chicago's meat-packing industry. By following Lithuanian immigrant Jurgis Rudkus's descent through the brutal? bloody hell of "Packingtown" and Chicago's seamy web of graft and corruption? Sinclair paints an unforgettable picture of the dark side of the American Dream
Summary
A documentary novel portraying industry's conditions at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. Sinclair's novel prompted public outrage which led President Theodore Roosevelt to demand an official investigation. This eventually led to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug laws
