The Jungle is a 1906 novel written by the American journalist and novelist Upton Sinclair (1878-1968).Sinclair wrote the novel to portray the harsh conditions and exploited lives of immigrants in the United States in Chicago and similar industrialized cities. Perhaps his main goal in exposing the meat industry and working conditions was to advance Socialism in the United States. However, most readers were more concerned with his exposure of health violations and unsanitary practices in the American meatpacking industry during the early 20th century, greatly contributing to a public outcry which led to reforms including the Meat Inspection Act. Sinclair famously said of the public reaction "I aimed at the public's heart, and by accident I hit it in the stomach."The book depicts working class poverty, the lack of social supports, harsh and unpleasant living and working conditions, and a hopelessness among many workers. These elements are contrasted with the deeply rooted corruption of people in power. A review by the writer Jack London called it "the Uncle Tom's Cabin of wage slavery.

There Will Be Blood wins a 2008 Golden Globes Award. Read about it here. There Will Be Blood wins two 2008 Academy Awards. Read about it here. Penguin Books is proud to now be the sole publisher of Oil!, the classic 1927 novel by Upton Sinclair. After writing The Jungle, his scathing indictment of the meatpacking industry, Sinclair turned his sights on the early days of the California oil industry in a highly entertaining story featuring a cavalcade of characters including senators, oil magnets, Hollywood film starlets, and a crusading evangelist. This lively and panoramic book, which was recently cited by David Denby in the New Yorker as being Sinclair’s “most readable” novel, is now the inspiration for the Paramount Vantage major motion picture, There Will Be Blood. It is the long-awaited film from Paul Thomas Anderson, one of the most admired filmmakers working today whose previous movies, Boogie Nights and Magnolia were both multiple Academy Award nominees. The movie stars Oscar-winner Daniel Day-Lewis (Gangs of New York, My Left Foot) and Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine). Paramount Vantage will be releasing the film in New York and Los Angeles on December 26, 2007 and go nationwide in January. This is the same company responsible for Babel and A Mighty Heart and the current releases, Into the Wild, Margot at the Wedding, and The Kite Runner. As wars rage on in the oil region and as anxiety over natural resources rise, the subject of this book, which celebrates its 80th anniversary in 2007, is more timely than ever.

Considered a masterpiece of travel literature for nearly a century, The Sea and the Jungle is a wise and witty book of firsts: ostensibly a lighthearted story of a Londoner's first ocean voyage, it is also a carefully crafted journalistic account of the first successful ascent of the Amazon River and its tributary, the Madeira, by an English steamer. First published in 1912, The Sea and the Jungle remains one of the most popular accounts of a traveler's experience in Amazonia. As Peter Matthiessen observed fifty years later, " The Sea and the Jungle is one of the few level-headed works in the literature of this region. . . . accurate and difficult to improve upon."

The Jungle is Upton Sinclair's scathing indictment of the meat packing industry in the early 1900s. This novel, which follows the Lithuanian immigrant Jurgis Rudkus and his family in their doomed struggle for survival in the brutal world of the Chicago stock yards, became a bestseller and changed history. The exposure of the appalling labor conditions and the unsanitary practices led to a public outcry, and eventually reforms, including the Meat Packing Act. At the time, fellow writer Jack London called The Jungle "the Uncle Tom's Cabin of wage slavery." Eric Schlosser's more recent assessment is ''The Jungle . . . captures something essential about the American immigrant experience and the workings of a brutal industrial system. It transcends the specifics of one historical era and sadly remains relevant to our own.'' Sinclair's novel is now read both as literature and as history. Upton Sinclair, journalist, novelist, political activist and gubernatorial candidate, has featured on the cover of Time magazine and is remembered for The Jungle and the wry saying "It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it."

Upton Sinclair (1878–1968) achieved popularity in the first half of the 20th century, acquiring particular fame for THE JUNGLE. It exposed conditions in the U.S. meat-packing industry, causing a public uproar that contributed to the passage of the Pure Food & Drug Act and the Meat Inspection Act. THE JUNGLE portrays the life of the immigrant in the United States and the corruption of the American meatpacking industry. The novel harshly depicts poverty, absence of social programs, unpleasant living and working conditions, and hopelessness prevalent among the working-class, which is contrasted with the deeply-rooted corruption of those in power. Sinclair placed these problems front and center for the American public to see, suggesting that something needed to be changed to get rid of American low-wage slavery. The book was thought too controversial and so it was self-published at first before it became big, and has been in print ever since. This is the complete uncensored version.
