Equality 7-2521 lives in the Dark Ages of the future, when all decisions are made by committee, all people live in collectives, all traces of individualism have been wiped out. But the spark of individual thought and freedom still burns in Equality 7-2521's breast, though he doesn't know what to call his passion to think and choose for himself, other than sinful. In a world where he is punished for being better than his brothers, he finds a tunnel from ancient times where he can be by himself to write and think. He discovers electricity - and the miracle of the love that a man can have for a woman. Equality 7-2521 comes close to losing his life for this because his knowledge was regarded as a treacherous blasphemy. In a world where the crowd is one - a great WE, he has rediscovered the lost and holy word - I. This 50th Anniversary edition of Ayn Rand's powerful novel includes a new Introduction by Ayn Rand's heir, Leonard Peikoff. It contains excerpts from documents - letters, interviews, and journal notes - by Ayn Rand in which she discusses Anthem. The Appendix reproduces the entire original British edition with Ayn Rand's handwritten editorial changes.
