Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This is an fairly engaging non-fiction rewrite of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, the socialist tract that inspired the Pure Food and Drug Act in 1906.. It attempts to provide additional insight, or at least the appearance of additional insight, with some statistics and a few new hard facts, but otherwise it contributes nothing actually new. It has long been a clever strategy by some historians to take an acclaimed book from the past and recreate it in a more modern form. Barrett does that here with some success, if not with much originality.
