The Jungle Book, because of its moral tone, came to be used as a motivational book by the Cub Scouts, a junior element of the Scouting movement.
This use of the book's universe was approved by Kipling after a direct petition of Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Scouting movement, who had originally asked for the author's permission for the use of the Memory Game from Kim in his scheme to develop the poor morale and fitness of working-class youths in cities.

 The Jungle by Upton Sinclair. Search, Read, Study, Discuss.
Upton Sinclair's The Jungle is a vivid portrait of life and death in a turn-of-the-century American meat-packing factory.

This is the first time I read The Jungle from start to finish (having to read an excerpt in 9th grade) and I have to say, this is a pretty good book IF you understand it.

 In Search of the American Hobo
Accordingly, the jungle was located near the railroad, close enough to get to and from the train yard or rail line but not so close as to attract unwanted attention.
In the jungle camp, especially a permanent jungle camp, might be found pots or kettles, utensils of various kinds, a line strung on which to dry clothes or a mirror with which a man might more easily shave.
As the railroad carried the hobo from the jungles to the cities and back again, it also carried the slang, stories, songs and sentiments that were the heart of hobo culture.

 Amazon.com: The Jungle: The Uncensored Original Edition: Books: Upton Sinclair,Kathleen De Grave,Earl Lee   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Sinclair widely utilized the metaphor of the jungle (survival of the fittest, etc.) throughout this book to reflect how the vulnerable worker is at the mercy of the powerful packers and politicians.
THE JUNGLE is an important book on the labor history of the United States, the non-fairytale immigration of foreigners into the melting pot, and the history of Chicago.
Now, with the release of "The Jungle: The Uncensored Original Edition," it is possible to discover that Sinclair not only wished to show exactly how bad the meat supply really was, but that his most important goal involved revelations about the plight of the working poor struggling under the crushing weight of laissez-faire capitalism.

 The Jungle Book (1967)
The jubilant adventure begins when Mowgli, a little boy raised by wolves, is urged by his friend Bagheera, a wise old panther, to seek safety in the man-village.
A vague storyline exists: get Mowgli out of the jungle and into the "man village." Mowgli - in a Peter Pan-esque refusal to enter the adult world - doesn't want to go, and only does so eventually when his hormones kick in after he sees a sexy (to him, at least) Indian babe.
The Jungle Book may be something you'd like to add to your collection; your desire will probably depend on your level of Disney affection.

Rudyard Kipling pours fuel on childhood fantasies with his tales of Mowgli, lost in the jungles of India as a child and adopted into a family of wolves.
A look beneath Kipling's wonderful prose reveals, like most great children's classics, that the author is using the unintimidating forum of children's literature to speak to kids of all ages with the hope that somehow we'll all finally get it.
The language and tone of Vogel's adaptation is changed in ways that strip the stories of the sense of pride and self that made the originals such tremendous lessons, and of the subtle darkness that gave them the ring of truth.

 Gapers Block : Airbags : Gapers Block Book Club April Book: The Jungle
The Jungle tells the story of Jurgis Rudkus, a Lithuanian immigrant who comes to Chicago with his family in hopes of pursuing the American Dream.
Instead, he realized, "I aimed at the public's heart, and by accident I hit it in the stomach." The Jungle prompted President Theodore Roosevelt to send federal investigators to the stockyards to verify Sinclair's story, and the results of the investigation led to the passing of the Pure Food and Drug Act that same year.
Because of the factual basis of the story and Sinclair's Socialist philosophy, critics are divided over whether The Jungle should be considered a novel or political propaganda.

 The Jungle Summary & Essays - Upton Sinclair
It is the story of an economic system that destroys Jurgis Rudkus and his family, treating them no better than the cattle that are slaughtered and vivisected in the book's most horrific and memorable scenes.
The Jungle is a rare example of a work of fiction that is so true to its source and so powerfully written that it changed the course of government regulation: it is generally credited with getting the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act passed.
By the end, the character of Jurgis is just barely significant, as his function is limited to just occasional agreement with the speeches that the author presents for the readers.

 The Jungle at 100
As you might recall from high school—probably from history class, not English—The Jungle tells the story of Jurgis Rudkus and his family, Lithuanian immigrants who are not only pulverized by the dangerous, disgusting, and low-paying work in the yards, but also cheated and grafted by rich and poor alike.
The purpose of the novel, which Sinclair dedicated to “the Workingmen of America,” was to draw attention to the misery of the lowest tier of workers in a capitalist economy.
Although The Jungle is still in print and continues to be assigned for the muckraking mini- unit in American History, it has not aged well as a novel.

 The Jungle Brothers
The Jungle Brothers have been around since hip hop's Golden Age, and they continue to adapt creatively to the changing soundscapes of both hip hop and DJ culture.
A prototype for later envelope-pushing crews like the Wu-Tang Clan, the Jungle Brothers were among the first groups to aggregate a like-minded posse of fellow rappers (the legendary Native Tongues: De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Black Sheep, and later Mos Def) in which intellect and vocabulary dominated the game.
The track introduced the sound of jungle to hip hoppers all over the globe, becoming an anthem of the massive drum and bass assault on the U.S. club scene in mid-'98, and spawning a generation of drum and bass remixes of hip hop hits.

In his desire to express the spirit of Afro-Cuban culture, in particular that of the uprooted Africans "who brought their primitive culture, their magical religion, with its mystical side in close correspondence with nature," Lam reinforces the Surrealist aspect of this work.
The artistic and cultural traditions of Lam's homeland and Europe converged when he returned to Cuba and renewed his familiarity with its light, vegetation, and culture.
In The Jungle the presence of the woman-horse, who in Afro-Cuban mysticism refers to a spirit in communication with the natural world, mirrors Lam's own confrontational dialogue with the so-called primitive interests expressed in advanced European painting.

Though intended to create sympathy for the exploited and poorly treated immigrant workers in the meat-packing industry, The Jungle instead aroused widespread public indignation at the quality of and impurities in processed meats and thus helped bring about the passage of federal food-inspection laws.
Sinclair ironically commented at the time, "I aimed at the public's heart and by accident I hit it in the stomach." The Jungle is the most enduring of the works of the "muckrakers".
Published at Sinclair's own expense after several publishers rejected it, it became a best-seller, and Sinclair used the proceeds to open Helicon Hall, a cooperative-living venture in Englewood, N.J. The building was destroyed by fire in 1907 and the project abandoned." — Encyclopedia Britannica
