This is the version of The Jungle that Sinclair very badly wanted to be the standard edition—not the gutted, much shorter commercial version with which we're all familiar. Unavailable for decades, this uncensored edition contains 36 chapters rather than the 31 in the expurgated edition. The restored material includes Sinclair's most pointed political commentary and additional shocking scenes from the meatpacking industry.
"In this fearful story the horrors of industrial slavery are as vividly drawn as if by lightning. It marks an epoch in revolutionary literature." —Eugene V. Debs
