THE JUNGLE by Upton Sinclair
Read the book and write a brief summary. (At least one full page) Then write another two pages about how you felt when you were reading the book. Did you know that these conditions had existed in this country? Did you know that it was standard practice that the newest immigrants be mistreated by those already here? What do you think of that idea? Why do you think that I assigned this book for you to read?
Remember that this is a sociology course (not a political science course) and I want your paper to reflect that. It should be written in your own words with no references except those taken directly from the novel.
