“...no man may initiate the use of physical force against others. No man—or group or society or government—has the right to assume the role of a criminal and initiate the use of physical compulsion against any man. Men have the right to use physical force only in retaliation and only against those who initiate its use. The ethical principle involved is simple and clear-cut: it is the difference between murder and self-defense. A holdup man seeks to gain a value, wealth, by killing his victim; the victim does not grow richer by killing a holdup man. The principle is: no man may obtain any values from others by resorting to physical force.” Ayn Rand

Press Release from the Ayn Rand Institute

Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” Named
One of 88 “Books That Shaped America”
Fifty-Five Years after Publication,
Rand’s Novel Recognized by Library of Congress


IRVINE, Calif.—Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” has been named one of 88 “Books That Shaped America” by the Library of Congress, placing it among other notable works, including “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Fahrenheit 451.” Rand’s novel, her magnum opus, was published in 1957 and hit the bestseller list that same year. Last year alone, “Atlas Shrugged” sold more than 400,000 copies.

Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, said people may be drawn to the book because of its relevance to the current political and economic culture.

“President Obama’s recent ‘you didn’t build that’ remarks could have been uttered by any of the villains in ‘Atlas Shrugged,’” said Brook. “The parallels that can be drawn between events in the book and today’s culture are becoming more and more pronounced.”

“Atlas Shrugged” is both a mystery and a love story following the decline of a fictional world’s economy and the people who attempt to save it. The novel embodies Ayn Rand’s philosophy, Objectivism, and examines the role of the mind in man’s existence.

“Many credit Rand for predicting the political events we’re seeing today in America,” said Brook. “While Rand herself said ‘Atlas Shrugged’ was not written as a prediction, more and more people are looking to the book as a way to find answers to their current situations.”

Rand is also known for her earlier novel “The Fountainhead,” which tells the story of a rugged individualist, struggling architect Howard Roark, who is unwilling to compromise his principles. She also authored two other novels and nine nonfiction books, plus ten posthumous works.

The Ayn Rand Institute is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to promoting the philosophy of Ayn Rand, author of Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead. For more information on Objectivism and Ayn Rand, visit www.aynrand.org
