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.

Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  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.'
