Summary
Scorned by the established critics, Rand wrote brilliant popular novels that have become permanent best sellers and founded an comprehensive philosophical and cultural movement which is shaking the foundations of the post-New Deal American political order. Merrill examines her espousal and then rejection of Nietzschean philosophy; her dismissal of religious faith; and her influence on-- and yet hostility to-- both conservatism and libertarianism

Summary
Enright, president of the Reason, Individualism, Freedom Institute, updates Ronald Merrill's classic study of Ayn Rand, The Ideas of Ayn Rand. The text interrogates Ayn Rand, known for her strident defense of capitalism, and all aspects of her writing and thought. We learn about Rand as a young Neitzschean, as a philosopher and political theorist, how Atlas Shrugged changed the world, who John Galt is, how Objectivism compares to libertarianism, and the legacy she leaves. The text is highly sympathetic and only brings in critical views from other would-be capitalist apologists. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
