At 1,168 pages, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's longest novel. Exercising her own individualistic, egocentric philosophy of Objectivism, she considered it her magnum opus. "Individuals of the mind" strike against society, refusing to share their work with the rest of the world. Stressing the primacy of private property ownership and laissez-faire capitalism, Rand argues against any kind of government intervention in the lives of individual citizens, referring to mandated "self sacrifice" as the downfall of society. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
