More About Upton Sinclair
Upton Sinclair (1878-1968) was born in Baltimore and began writing dime novels to pay his way through the College of the City of New York. While doing graduate work at Columbia University, he wrote six novels, including King Midas (1901), The Journal of Arthur Stirling (1903), and Manassas (1904). His masterwork, The Jungle (1906), aided the passage of pure food laws and won him wide acclaim. Active throughout his life in socialist causes, he invested the money he made from The Jungle in a Utopian experiment, the Helicon Hall Colony in Englewood, New Jersey. In 1915, he moved to California, where he ran unsuccessfully for public office and waged an antipoverty campaign. Among his later works was Dragon's Teeth (1942), for which he won a Pulitzer Prize.
Upton Sinclair was born in 1878 and died in 1968.

Reviews - What do customers think about Presidential Agent I (World's End)?
the face of XX century Feb 3, 2001
This very short century, that begins in 1918 and ends with of Berlin's wall, has its most formidable days pictured in this "saga" about the struggle between totalitarian and democratic states. Still very much mistaken about the former URSS and "socialist paradise" as the tactical alliance imposed at the time of WW2, the facts depicted in these books bring back times that should not be forgotten. The plot is good, although it takes, I believe, some kind of previous knowledge about those days to be followed. All in all, it is perhaps the best and more comprehensive novel, or sequence of novels, about an era that makes the main part of the last century, and will certainly be an important part of future appreciation of our time.
