Overview

Anthem is Ayn Rand's classic tale of a dark future age of the great "We"-a world that deprives individuals of name, independence, and values. Written a full decade before George Orwell's "1984," this dystopian novel depicts a man who seeks escape from a society in which individuality has been utterly destroyed. Rand expertly shows how collectivism (including social programs in the United States) destroys freedom and individuality. Her philosophy is simple: "planning" is a synonym for "collectivism," and "collectivism" is a metaphor for communism and tyranny. This important book should be read by all who are concerned about the role of government in modern life. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.

About the Author

Russian born American novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand (1905-1982) is best known for her books The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. Ideologically, Rand was very critical of communism and an advocate of capitalism. These beliefs would lead her to develop a philosophy called Objectivism. Though many in academia have been critical of both her literary and philosophical work, she is still championed by many contemporary conservatives and libertarians.
