Book Cover
He lived in the dark ages of the future.  In a loveless world he dared to love the woman of his choice.  In an age that had lost all trace of science and civilization he had the courage to seek and find knowledge.  But these were not the crimes for which he would be hunted.  He was marked for death because he had committed the unpardonable sin: he had stood forth from the mindless human herd.  He was a man alone.  Ayn Rand's classic tale of a future dark age of the great "We" - a world that deprives individuals of name, independence and values - anticipates her later masterpieces, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged.

This centennial edition of Anthem, celebrating the controversial and enduring legacy of its author, features an introduction by Rand's literary executor, Leonard Peikoff, which includes excerpts from documents by Ayn Rand - letters, interviews, and journal notes in which she discusses Anthem.  This volume also includes a complete reproduction of the original British edition with Ayn Rand's handwritten editorial changes and a Reader's Guide to her writings and philosophy.

Born February 2, 1905, AYN RAND published her first novel, We the Living, in 1936.  Anthem followed in 1938.  It was with the publication of The Fountainhead (1943) and Atlas Shrugged (1957) that she achieved her spectacular success.  Ms. Rand's unique philosophy, Objectivism, has gained a worldwide audience.  The fundamentals of her philosophy are put forth in three non-fiction books, Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology, The Virtue of Selfishness, and Capitolism: The Unknown Ideal.  They are all available in Signet editions, as is the magnificent statement of her artistic credo, The Romantic Manifesto.

Book Cover
The astounding story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world - and did.  Tremendous in scope, breathtaking is its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is unlike any other book you have ever read.  It is a mystery story, not about the murder of man's body, but about the murder - and rebirth - of man's spirit.

With this acclaimed work and its immortal query "Who is John Gault?" 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 in 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 and introduction by  Rand's literary executor, Leonard Peikoff, and a Reader's Guide to her writings and philosophy.  This volume is an eagerly welcomed by all admirers of what Dr. Peikoff calls "Ayn Rand's masterwork."
