More About Ayn Rand Nation by Gary Weiss
 
 
 
Overview

Thirty years after her death, Ayn Rand's ideas have never been more important. Unfettered capitalism, unregulated business, bare-bones government providing no social services, glorification of selfishness, disdain for Judeo-Christian morality these are the tenets of Rand's harsh philosophy.

Now with a new afterword on Rand, Paul Ryan, and the 2012 presidential election, "Ayn Rand Nation "explores the people and institutions that remain under the spell of the Russian-born novelist. Gary Weiss provides new insights into Rand's inner circle in the last years of her life, with revelations of never-before-publicized predictions by Rand that still resonate today. Lastly, Weiss provides a strategy for a renewed national dialogue, an embrace of the nation's core values that is needed to deal with Rand's pervasive grip on society.

From "The Fountainhead" and "Atlas Shrugged" to Rand's lesser-known and misunderstood nonfiction books, Gary Weiss examines the impact of Rand's thinking across our society."
