About This Item

New York: New American Library, 1966. 1st . Hardcover. Fine condition.. Bound in publisher's original black cloth spine with dark green cloth boards. Spine stamped in silver. One of 700 numbered copies signed by the author. Slipcase. Book is in fine condition and the slipcase is rubbed in a few spots so slightly it's almost not worth mentioning. The slipcase is most often seen in rough condition because it is so fragile. This is the best copy we've seen in a long time. We've also made one of our famous in house card stock slipcases to keep this copy from any abuse.1st Edition, Limited.

Synopsis

The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world's collapse. This is the view of Ayn Rand, a view so radically opposed to prevailing attitudes that it constitutes a major philosophic revolution. In this series of essays, she presents her stand on the persecution of big business, the causes of war, the default of conservatism, and the evils of altruism. Here is a challenging new look at modern society by one of the most provocative intellectuals on the American scene.This edition includes two articles by Ayn Rand which did not appear in the hardcover edition: The Wreckage of the Consensus," which presents the Objectivists views on Vietnam and the draft; and Requiem for Man," an answer to the Papal encyclical Progresso Populorum.
