From the back of the 50th anniversary edition of Atlas Shrugged:

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.

When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing; when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors; when you see that men get rich more easily by graft than by work, and your laws no longer protect you against them, but protect them against you... you may know that your society is doomed.
Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Leave them alone.
If you do not defend the rights of the individual, how can you be said to really be defending the rights of minorities?
No dictatorship has ever survived that did not institute censorship.
We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: The stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission.
The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.
