About This Item

New York: Random House, 1957. 3rd Printing. Hard Cover. Good/Good. 3rd printing of original 1957 edition, in first state George Salter jacket with $6.95 price and 10/57 on front flap. Hinges weakening, yellowed tape remnants on endpapers, 1 inch chip from jacket spine base, jacket edges rubbed, owner bookplate on front endpaper, related news clippings laid in. 1168, [3] pp. 8vo. 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. Atlas Shrugged made Rand not only one of the most popular novelists of the century, but one of its most influential thinkers. Atlas Shrugged is 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 stretches the boundaries further than any book you have ever read. It is a mystery, not about the murder of a man's body, but about the murder - and rebirth - of man's spirit.

Synopsis

Atlas Shrugged is a novel by Ayn Rand, first published in 1957 in the United States. This was Rand's fourth, longest and last novel, and she considered it her magnum opus in the realm of fiction writing. As indicated by its working title The Strike, the book explores a dystopian United States where leading innovators, ranging from industrialists to artists, refuse to be exploited by society.
