Lanny Budd infiltrates the Nazi high command in the riveting sixth chapter of Upton Sinclair’s Pulitzer Prize–winning series of historical novels Dashing and well-connected, Lanny Budd has earned the trust of the Nazi high command. To Adolf Hitler and his inner circle, the American art dealer is a “true believer” committed to their Fascist cause. But Lanny is actually a secret agent serving as President Franklin Roosevelt’s eyes and ears in Germany. When he learns of the Führer’s plans for conquest, Lanny’s dire warnings to Neville Chamberlain and other reluctant European leaders fall on deaf ears. The bitter seeds sown decades earlier with the Treaty of Versailles are now bearing fruit, and there will be no stopping the Nazi war machine as it rolls relentlessly on toward Paris. Dragon Harvest captures the dramatic moment when world leaders realized that in trying to appease Hitler, they made a grave mistake. An astonishing mix of history, adventure, and romance, the Lanny Budd Novels are a testament to the breathtaking scope of Upton Sinclair’s vision and his singular talents as a storyteller.

Books four through six in the Pulitzer Prize–winning series of historical novels about an international spy in the first half of the twentieth century. An ambitious and entertaining mix of history, adventure, and romance, Upton Sinclair’s Pulitzer Prize–winning Lanny Budd novels are a testament to the breathtaking scope of the author’s vision and his singular talents as a storyteller. “Few works of fiction are more fun to read; fewer still make history half as clear, or as human” (Time). In these three novels, as the threat of Nazism grows in the 1930s, Lanny progresses from international art dealer to international spy. Wide Is the Gate: When his arms dealer father strikes a business agreement with Hermann Göring, Lanny uses the opportunity and his art world reputation to move easily among the Nazi high command and gather valuable information he can transmit back to those who are dedicated to the destruction of Nazism and Fascism. He’s playing a dangerous—albeit necessary—game, which will carry him from Germany to Spain on a life-and-death mission on the eve of the Spanish Civil War. The Presidential Agent: In 1937, Lanny’s boss from the Paris Peace Conference—now one of Roosevelt’s top advisors—connects him to the president. Appointed Presidential Agent 103, he embarks on a secret assignment that takes him back into the Third Reich as the Allied powers prepare to cede Czechoslovakia to Adolf Hitler in a futile attempt to avoid war. But Lanny’s motivations are not just political: The woman he loves has fallen into the brutal hands of the Gestapo, and Lanny will risk everything to save her. Dragon Harvest: Lanny has earned the trust of Adolf Hitler and his inner circle, who are convinced the American art dealer is a “true believer” committed to their Fascist cause. But when Roosevelt’s secret agent learns of the Führer’s plans for conquest, his dire warnings to Neville Chamberlain and other reluctant European leaders fall on deaf ears. The bitter seeds sown decades earlier with the Treaty of Versailles are now bearing fruit, and there will be no stopping the Nazi war machine as it rolls relentlessly on toward Paris.

Das große US-Epos um Klassenjustiz und staatliche Willkür jetzt in deutscher Neuübersetzung Vom Tellerwäscher zum Märtyrer – die Namen Sacco und Vanzetti stehen für den Wirklichkeit gewordenen amerikanischen Alptraum. Ihr Schicksal erschütterte Millionen Menschen weltweit in ihrem Glauben an Recht und Ordnung. Upton Sinclair, engagierter Romancier und Gesellschaftskritiker, inszenierte die realen Geschehnisse der Zwanzigerjahre als fesselndes literarisches Epochendrama. Glamour, Jazz und endlose Partys: Das waren die Roaring Twenties. Allerdings ist das nur die halbe Wahrheit – Upton Sinclair zeigt uns die ganze. Denn während die Happy Few feierten, wurden die Massen mittels brutaler Klassenjustiz niedergehalten. Am Beispiel der einflussreichen Ostküsten-Sippe Thornwell zeigt «Boston», wie das System staatlich sanktionierter Korruption funktionierte. Als Kulminationspunkt dient der Schauprozess gegen die zwei bekanntesten Justizopfer der amerikanischen Geschichte, Nicola Sacco und Bartolomeo Vanzetti, die 1927 wegen Mordes hingerichtet wurden. In diesem ergreifenden Buch geht es um die moralische Glaubwürdigkeit offizieller Repräsentanten und Institutionen, um Menschenliebe und Bürgerpflicht, um Gerechtigkeit und den Mut zur Wahrheit.

Ein Schlüsselroman über die Tyrannei des Raubtierkapitalismus – jetzt in deutscher Neuübersetzung «Öl!» ist das US-Epos über die legendäre Zeit der Ölbarone: übers schnelle Geld und die Faszination jenes Rohstoffs, der wie kein anderer das Antlitz der modernen Zivilisation geprägt hat. Mit ökonomischer Klarsicht schildert Sinclair den Wettlauf ums «schwarze Gold», skrupellose Verteilungskämpfe und das beispiellose Auseinanderdriften von Arm und Reich. Ein Glanzstück welthaltiger, engagierter Romankunst! J. Arnold Ross hat es mit Ehrgeiz, Gerissenheit und Glück zum Erdölmagnaten gebracht, Sohn Bunny ist zum Erben seines «schmierigen Reichtums» auserkoren. Doch statt sich seiner Privilegien zu freuen, verbringt er jede freie Minute auf den Erdölfeldern Kaliforniens und entdeckt dort seine Sympathien für die einfachen Leute. Fortan pendelt der junge Idealist zwischen den Sphären, ohne in einer davon je ganz heimisch zu werden: weder in den verschwörerischen Machtzirkeln seines Vaters noch im gärenden Arbeitermilieu, aber auch nicht auf dem Universitätscampus, geschweige denn in Hollywoods Glamourwelt. Zwischen allen Fronten stehend, muss er erkennen, dass das Leben ehernen Gesetzen von Habgier und Betrug gehorcht. Selten ist die Frage nach einer menschenwürdigen Gesellschaft literarisch eindringlicher gestaltet worden als am Schicksal des edelmütigen Ölprinzen Bunny Ross.
