Item description for The FLivver King: The Story of Ford-America by Upton Sinclair...

This novel describes the working class day-to-day struggle for economic justice. The book was written in 1937 to aid the formation of the 'United Auto Workers' (UAW). It is a continuation of Sinclair's famous novel "The Jungle". Again,this novel depicts how alienated work not only brings degradation to workers, but is the motivation for resistance and finally revolt. Great balls of fire - Brothers! The novel turns out to be a historical documewnt of the first four decades of the 20th Century. The story is told from two conflicting views: That of Henry Ford and one of his workers. As we begin the 21st Century it is as important as ever for the American working and middle class to understand the roots of the American Labor Movement, especially the UAW. A must read for members of the UAW! A Collector's Edition.

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Upton Sinclair (1878-1968) was born in Baltimore. At age fifteen, he began writing a series of dime novels in order to pay for his education at the City College of New York. He was later accepted to do graduate work at Columbia, and while there he published a number of novels, including The Journal of Arthur Stirling (1903) and Manassas (1904). Sinclair's breakthrough came in 1906 with the publication of The Jungle, a scathing indictment of the Chicago meat-packing industry. His later works include World's End (1940), Dragon's Teeth (1942), which won him a Pulitzer Prize, O Shepherd, Speak! (1949) and Another Pamela (1950).
