    Book details


The story of the 'White Terror,' and how 'big business' pulled off the stunt of landing the 'reds' in jail. It is the inside story of a 'secret agent,' and deals with half a dozen celebrated cases concerning which you have been fooled. Upton Sinclair, the prolific socialist author who is best-remembered for his groundbreaking 1906 fictional expose of labor abuses and the American meat-packing industry, 'The Jungle,' began by writing jokes and juvenile adventure stories to finance his education at the City College of New York. Although born to an aristocratic Southern family, Sinclair's father was an alcoholic, so the family's fortunes varied wildly during his youth. A remarkably successful socialist candidate for Governor of California in the 1930s, many of Sinclair's novels revolved around his social concerns. Just as 'The Jungle' was a masterpiece of 'muckraking' journalism that led to initial regulation of food safety in the United States, novels like '100%: The Story of a Patriot' were fictional responses to Sinclair's real-life social and economic concerns. '100%' tells the story of Peter Gudge, a poor young man who becomes embroiled in industrial spying and sabotage. Said to be based upon a real case of a bombing in San Francisco, Peter's tale is compelling reading. Originally published by the author himself, '100%: The Story of a Patriot' is the story of a young man's descent into fear and corruption, and eventual happy redemption.
