Description

The collected writings of philosophers, poets, novelists, social reformers, and others who have voiced the struggle against social injustice.

Selected from twenty-five languages, covering a period of five thousand years.

Upton Sinclair (Sylvia, The Jungle, etc.) compiled this collection of essays, poems, and stories anthologizing the history of social protest against injustice, published in 1915. The anthology includes an introduction by Jack London (White Fang, The Call of the Wild).

Sinclair is perhaps best known for his 1906 expose of the meat packing industry, The Jungle, which resulted in significant legislative changes to improve worker protections and conditions on factory floors. Sinclair, who wrote about America's rapid early 20th-century industrialization from the worker's perspective, is posthumously regarded as one of the most influential writers of the Progressive Era.

The anthology includes essays from figures ranging from American essayists, Biblical prophets, Japanese emperors, to Greek philosophers.
