About This Item

We carry the largest selection of rare, signed, and manuscript Ayn rand in private hands. "The basic issue is only: Is man free? In mankind's history, capitalism is the only system that answers: Yes."

Book has a tiny check mark in left margin of page 10 and a tiny tear on bottom edges of pp251-276. Still a collectible, well-priced copy of this enduring Rand title. Book #P3301. $88. Best price on the market!

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.
