Anthem (06 Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

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. This publication from Boomer Books is specially designed and typeset for comfortable reading.
