Product description
Synopsis
"Who is John Galt?" is the immortal question posed at the beginning of Ayn Rand's masterpiece. The answer is the astonishing story of a man who said he would stop the motor of the world and did. As passionate as it is profound, "Atlas Shrugged" is one of the most influential novels of our time. In it, Rand dramatizes the main tenets of Objectivism, her philosophy of rational selfishness. She explores the ramifications of her radical thinking in a world that penalizes human intelligence and integrity. Part mystery, part thriller, part philosophical inquiry, part volatile love affair, "Atlas Shrugged" is the book that confirmed Ayn Rand as one of the most popular novelist and most respected thinkers of the 20th century.

Published in 1957, Atlas Shrugged was Ayn Rand's greatest achievement and last work of fiction. In this novel she dramatizes her unique philosophy through an intellectual mystery story that integrates ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, politics, economics, and sex. Set in a near-future U.S.A. whose economy is collapsing as a result of the mysterious disappearance of leading innovators and industrialists, this novel presents an astounding panorama of human life-from the productive genius who becomes a worthless playboy...to the great steel industrialist who does not know that he is working for his own destruction...to the philosopher who becomes a pirate...to the woman who runs a transcontinental railroad...to the lowest track worker in her train tunnels. Peopled by larger-than-life heroes and villains, charged with towering questions of good and evil, Atlas Shrugged is a philosophical revolution told in the form of an action thriller.

The astounding story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world-and did. Tremendous in scope breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is unlike any other book you have ever read. It is a mystery story, not about the murder of a man's body, but about the murder-and rebirth-of man's spirit. With this acclaimed work and its immortal query 'who is John Galt?' Ayn Rand found the perfect artistic form to express her vision of existence. This is the book that has made her not only one of its most popular novelists of modern times, but also one of its most influential and controversial thinkers. This anniversary edition of Atlas Shrugged , celebrating the enduring legacy of its author, features an introduction by Rand's literary executor, Leonard Peikoff, and a Reader's Guide to her writings and philosophy. This volume will be welcomed by all admirers of what Dr. Peikoff calls 'Ayn Rand's masterwork.'
