216 Words1 Page
The Jungle was written by Upton Sinclair and published in 1906. I chose this book because it’s been mentioned in multiple History classes I’ve taken. I took it upon interest mainly because it is about the brutal and unfair treatment of immigrants in labor and because it exposed the meat industry. (it exposed both). Sinclair strives to expose the danger in capitalism by vividly describing and exposing the ranging and brutal treatment of immigrant laborers who searched to live the American dream but found misfortune instead. ADD ANOTHER SENTENCE. Thesis expose corruption of American meatpacking industry. Fictional novel. Talks about the unfortunate life of a Lithuanian family who migrated to Chicago, most dead by the end of the story. Sinclair
