Description - Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

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.

Book Reviews - Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

UK Kirkus Review » 'Who is John Galt?' This is the immortal query that is central to this incredible mystery story about the murder and rebirth of one man's spirit. Rand explores why a man will fight battles against the people he loves, in her endeavour to express her vision of human existence. Known the world over for her philosphical works on objectivism, Rand also shows herself to be an extremely accomplished writer of fiction. (Kirkus UK)
