The Jungle

An ardent activist, champion of political reform, novelist, and progressive journalist, Upton Sinclair is perhaps best known today for The Jungle - his devastating exposé of the meat-packing industry. A protest novel he privately published in 1906, the book was a shocking revelation of intolerable labor practices and unsanitary working conditions in the Chicago stockyards. It quickly became a bestseller, arousing public sentiment and resulting in such federal legislation as the Pure Food and Drug Act. The brutally grim story of a Slavic family who emigrates to America, The Jungle tells of their rapid and inexorable descent into numbing poverty, moral degradation, and social and economic despair. Vulnerable and isolated, the family of Jurgis Rudkus struggles - unsuccessfully - to survive in an urban jungle. A powerful view of turn-of-the-century poverty, graft, and corruption, this fiercely realistic American classic is still required reading in many history and literature classes. It will continue to haunt readers long after they've finished the last page.

A compelling graphic novel adaptation of Upton Sinclair's seminal protest novel that brings to life the harsh conditions and exploited existences of immigrants in Chicago's meatpacking industry in the early twentieth century. Long acclaimed around the world, Upton Sinclair's 1906 muckraking novel The Jungle remains a powerful book even today. Not many works of literature can boast that their publication brought about actual social and labor change, but that's just what The Jungle did, as it led to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906. In today's society, where labor and safety of the food we eat remain key concerns for all, Sinclair's shocking story still resonates. Bringing new life and energy to this classic work, adapter and illustrator Kristina Gehrmann takes Sinclair's prose and transforms it through pen and ink, allowing you to discover (or rediscover) this book and see it from a whole new perspective.

Wir befinden uns in der Zeit des Wirtschaftswunders, ganz Deutschland ist von dem Gedanken an ökonomischen Erfolg beherrscht: Wohlstandsorientierung wird zum gesellschaftlichen Leitbild, man will die Schrecken von Naziherrschaft und Zweitem Weltkrieg vergessen und sich etwas leisten können, und dafür ist man bereit, hart und viel zu arbeiten. Allerdings wird gegen die verkrustete Gesellschaft auch Protest seitens der Jugend laut, die den Rock 'n' Roll als Medium der Rebellion für sich entdeckt. Insbesondere Elvis Presley, aber auch Chuck Berry und Little Richard, oder dann Peter Kraus und Ted Herold in Deutschland, sind die Helden einer neuen, körperbetonten und wilden Musik, die - so wie sich das noch immer gehört hat - von den Eltern als minderwertig abgetan wird: Nur so macht Rebellion schließlich Spaß... Neben die musikalischen treten v.a. auch Kinohelden, sie heißen Marlon Brando und James Dean. In Filmen wie "Denn sie wissen nicht, was sie tun" ("Rebel Without a Cause", Nicholas Ray 1955) oder "Die Saat der Gewalt" ("Blackboard Jungle", Richard Brooks 1955) werden diese Leinwandrebellen zu Vorbildern für viele junge Männer. Für die Frauen sind Marylin Monroe und Brigitte Bardot Stilikonen. In Deutschland ist insbesondere ein Name untrennbar mit dem Phänomen der Halbstarken verbunden: Horst Buchholz. Bei Die Halbstarken" handelt es sich um ein Produkt der Arbeit im Medienverbund, denn Will Tremper schrieb das Drehbuch auf der Grundlage seiner gleichnamigen Erzählung (die er als "Zeitroman" bezeichnet), die wiederum mit Szenenfotos aus dem Film in der Reihe "Der bunte TOXI Film-Roman" im Langhelm-Verlag (Hannover) veröffentlich wurde. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Charles Rettinghaus. Hörprobe: http://samples.audible.de/bk/mnka/000006/bk_mnka_000006_sample.mp3. Digitales Hörbuch im AAX Format.

Much is said in Marxist literature about Marxist methodology which is supposed to be entirely original - differing a great deal from all other trends in the modern philosophy of science. On the other hand, however, it is unfallacious to state that there are no people outside Marxism who would like to deny this statement. This has to put those who really believe that Marxism has something important to say in philosophy of science on guard: if someone says something important others usually are inclined to protest. But who is inclined to protest when it is stated that Marx em ployed both induction and deduction, a historical method and a logical one as well, synthesis, but also analysis, etc? Who is inclined to protest when it is not known what within this framework 'induction', 'deduction' 'history' or 'logic' mean? Who is inclined to protest when 'Marxist meth odology' is presented not with the aid of precise definitions and clear hypotheses but with the aid of a jungle of quotations? I think that the main malfeasance of the current 'Marxist methodology', is that of ecclecticism. The methodology of Marx is presented as a col lection of trivial and/or obscure ideas but not as a system of statements subordinated to any clear, definite viewpoint presenting a new grasp ofthe nature of scientific cognition. Search for reconstruction of Marxian meth odology as a system of the kind is the main aim of this book.
