While many novels have a profound effect on the way people think, few have the potency to inspire action or change among the very uppermost class of lawmakers and politicians, yet that is what Upton Sinclair’s harrowing novel The Jungle achieved after its 1906 publication. As much a stomach-churning expose of the meat packing industry as a frank look into the disparity of wealth distribution and the corruption of individuals in power during the early 20th century, upon reading The Jungle President Theodore Roosevelt personally moved to create meat inspection legislation in the United States, the prototype for the FDA.
