Overview

"Do I think that Objectivism will be the philosophy of the future? I would say yes, but..."--Ayn Rand to Playboy Magazine, 1964.

"My views will probably be the norm in the future, but not right now."--Ayn Rand to Johnny Carson, 1967.

Will they? The Age of Rand describes what Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism, will mean in practice--for good and ill. Rand expressed her controversial ideas in her best-selling novels, Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead. Every year, more commentators debate those ideas, often heatedly.

Frederick Cookinham asks questions no author has asked before:

· Would Objectivists destroy the environment in favor of rampant development?

· Why will Objectivist civilization be built on the oceans and in space?

· Is Objectivism a "Nietzschean Superman" philosophy?

Ayn Rand often said, "Check your premises, and watch your implications!" Explore, in The Age of Rand, the astounding implications of this fast-growing and provocative new system of ideas. Some philosophy will dominate this new century--be prepared if it turns out to be Ayn Rand's.

"Frederick Cookinham has written something of great worth to thousands who have been affected by Rand's work."--Andrea Millen Rich, Laissez Faire Books.
