Upton Sinclair's The Jungle is a novel portraying the corruption of the American meat industry in the early part of the twentieth century. The dismal living and working conditions and sense of hopelessness prevalent among the impoverished workers is compared to the corruption of the rich. Upton aimed to make such "wage slavery" issues center-stage in the minds of the American public. Despite already being serialized, it was rejected as a novel five times before being published in 1906, when it quickly became a bestseller.

It's been some time since I read this, and I don't recall any details but still have a positive feeling about the book. ( )
  mykl-s | Aug 13, 2023 |
I dare anyone to read this novel and continue to believe that laissez-faire capitalism is the best economic system. Although Sinclair inserts a lot of pro-socialist propaganda at the end of the Jungle, the harrowing story of Jurgis Rudkus and his family demonstrates the ways that the average worker is exploited not only by the corporation but also the political machine.

Into this wild-beast tangle these men had been born without their consent, they had taken part in it because they could not help it; that they were in gaol was no disgrace to them, for the game had never been fair, the dice were loaded.  They were swindlers and thieves of pennies and dimes, and they had been trapped and put out of the way by the swindlers and thieves of millions of dollars.
