Айн Рэнд - Atlas Shrugged
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 Gait?" 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 the 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 eagerly welcomed by all admirers of what Dr.Peikoff calls "Ayn Rand's masterwork."
