Upton Sinclair's muckraking masterpiece The Jungle centers on Jurgis Rudkus, a Lithuanian immigrant working in Chicago's infamous Packingtown. Instead of finding the American Dream, Rudkus and his family inhabit a brutal, soul-crushing urban jungle dominated by greedy bosses, pitiless con-men, and corrupt politicians. Aroused the indignation of the public and forced a government investigation which led to passage of pure food laws. It also established its young author as a fearless crusader for the rights of the working man - one of the world's leading spokespersons for freedom, equality and humanity.

(Key Words: Upton Sinclair, Chicago, Meat, Stockyards, Factory Life, Illinois, Food and Drug Administration, Robert B. Downs).
