Description of Artwork: "While several of Sinclair's other novels were banned due to their explicit language, The Jungle came under scrutiny by Senator Joe McCarthy for its Communist sympathies in 1953. Ironically, at various times the novel has been banned both for its socialist views (Yugoslavia, 1929; Nazi Germany, 1933; South Korea, 1985) and for its opposition to Communist ideology (East Germany, 1956)."
