Upton Sinclair's incendiary 1906 novel exposed the harsh realities of industrialized society to the American people at large. The Jungle is the fictionalized narrative of Jurgis Rudkus, a Lithuanian-American immigrant trying to make a life for his family in Chicago. Capturing the brutal realities of the meatpacking industry, as well as capitalism's brutal disregard for the welfare of its impoverished labor force, Sinclair's work ushered in a new era of worker's rights and union organization and reshaped a nation.
