A world to win by Upton Sinclair( Book )

40 editions published between 1946 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,987 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There seems never to be a question as to whether or not a new Lanny Budd novel will sell. It will. This one has the familiar ingredients:- full quota of yesterday's headlines served up with applesauce, as the intrepid Superman, Lanny Budd, playboy of Europe's capitals, expert on art, friend of Nazi sympathizers, and - in reality - F.D.R.'s "presidential agent" - uses all this as front for investigation under the actuality of wartorn Europe. This panel in his adventures starts with an interview in Vicky France with Laval and ends with an interview in Moscow under siege with Stalin - the span, 1940 to 1948. He continues his hazardous career, with one crack in the armor when he is virtually booted from Britain as suspect; he even trains intensively under Prof. Einstein so that he may enter Nazi Germany once again and extract some secrets of atomic investigation and bring them back to America; he takes an enforced six months' furlough as a result of a plane crash; and he solves his "to do or not to do" emotional tangles by having fate dispose neatly of the insistent Lizbeth, leaving him with Laurel in Hongkong, and marriage as the answer to the problem of their escape. One finishes the 700 pages wondering anew at Upton Sinclair's facility in spinning a plot from hackneyed thread, dated colloquialisms and cliches - and making it incontrovertibly readable- and saleable."--Kirkus
Dragon harvest by Upton Sinclair( Book )

51 editions published between 1915 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Predictable - with the big following the Lanny Budd saga has secured, for this again is dependable contemporary adventure, a thriller written against the headlines, with plausible (sometimes) footnotes to history in the contribution such a character as Lanny Budd might be making. Lanny, "scion of privilege" is still acting as P(residential) A(gent), still walking the tightrope of the appeaser, the friend of high-ranking Nasis, of British , of French collaborators - while beneath the patina of the art collector and dealer, who refuses to take sides, he is actually feeding important material to the White House, and helping the German Underground with funds, through Monck, now that Trudi is dead. Two new women enter his life, but he manages to avoid entangling alliances though Liebeth, another Irma in the making, angles for his favor; and Laurel Creston, writer, has to be smuggled out of Germany, via a trick in Lanny's repertoire of the occult, Hitler, Gearing, Hess - all play into Lanny's hands, but with the actual blitzkring under way, and Paris in German hands, Lanny is left pretty close to last act in his double reis...My humph on the enormous success of this series (this is, I think, the sixth) is that Sinclair tells a fast paced story which has a background of known facts and of backstairs gossip of the rich and famous."--Kirkus

Boston : a novel by Upton Sinclair( Book )

81 editions published between 1928 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 1,703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A novel on the 1920s trial and execution of suspected anarchists Sacco and Vansetti. Of all the books that have appeared over the years concerning the case, the most complete and convincing was first published in 1928, only a year after the execution of Sacco and Vanzetti. That book is Upton Sinclair's Boston. In his "documentary novel" the celebrated author of The Jungle combined a firm grasp of the facts of the case with an engrossing fictional framework to produce a remarkably accurate and comprehensive report of the events that spanned the years 1919 to 1927 which ultimately focused the attention of the whole world on a drama played out in the drawing rooms, courts, and streets of the city of Boston. In Boston, Sinclair described the xenophobia and paranoia that led the upper crust of Boston society to see these two illiterate immigrants as a threat to their way of life, and led to their conviction on the flimsiest of evidence. Sinclair used his considerable skills to arouse the reader to a state of outrage as the protagonists' inevitable fate approaches
