Publisher's Synopsis

Today's investigative journalism had its origins in the writings of the muckrakers, journalists who exposed government corruption and unfair business practices. They also championed the rights and lives of immigrants and the poor. The stark realism evoked in their articles led to calls for reforms in business and government. This exciting title highlights the exploits of famous muckrakers such as Upton Sinclair, Nellie Bly, and Ida B. Tarbell.
