Price incl. VAT, excl delivery


One of the most powerful, provocative and enduring novels to expose social inustice ever published in the United States.

This dramatic and deeply affecting story documents the brutal conditions in the Chicago stockyards at the turn of the century, bringing into sharp moral focus the appalling odds against which immigrants and other working people struggled for their share of the American Dream.

As Ronald Gottesman writes in his Introduction, Upton Sinclair was a passionate believer in the redemption of mankind through social reform. His expose of the interlocking corruption in American corporate and political life was a major literary event when it was published in 1906, and caused an almost immediate reform in pure-food legislation.
