  • "In this book, Project Censored founder Carl Jensen introduces twenty-one of individuals, whose probing and influential work forever changed the United States during the twentieth century. Here are the pioneering muckrakers, like Upton Sinclair, author of the fact-based novel The Jungle that inspired Theodore Roosevelt to sign the Pure Food and Drug Act into law; Ida Mae Tarbell, whose McClure magazine exposes led to the dissolution of the Standard Oil monopoly; and reporter Lincoln Steffens, who unearthed the corruption in both municipal and federal governments." "The writers included in this deftly researched volume dedicated their lives to fighting for social, civil, political, and environmental rights with their mighty pens. Together, the work of these investigative reporters demonstrates how influential the press can be and how crucial freedom of the press is to the very fabric of our nation."--BOOK JACKET
