Summary
Includes Reader's guide, p. 1071-1079. New introduction by Leonard Peikoff. Non-contradiction -- The theme -- The chain -- The top and the bottom -- The immovable movers -- The climax of the D'Anconias -- The non-commercial -- The exploiters and the exploited -- The John Galt line -- The sacred and the profane -- Wyatt's torch -- Either-or -- The man who belonged on earth -- The aristocracy of pull -- White blackmail -- The sanction of the victim -- Account overdrawn -- Miracle metal -- The moratorium on brains -- By our love -- The face without pain or fear of guilt -- The sign of the dollar -- A is A -- Atlantis -- The utopia of greed -- Anti-greed -- Anti-life -- Their brothers' keepers -- The concerto of deliverance -- "This is John Galt speaking" -- The egoist -- The generator -- In the name of the best within us. This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world, and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he have to fight his battle not against his enemys but against those who need him most? Why does he fight his hardest battle against the woman he loves? You will learn the answers to these questions when you discover the reason behind the baffling events that play havoc with the lives of the amazing men and women in this remarkable book. Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, "Atlas shrugged" is Ayn Rand's magnum opus, which launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. "Atlas shrugged" emerged as a premier moral apologia for Capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who have never heard Capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

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. .
