Synopsis: In It Usually Begins With Ayn Rand, Jerome Tuccille takes the reader on a “hilarious romp through the wild and kooky reaches of the libertarian right,” according to Publisher’s Weekly. Along the way he explodes many myths surrounding leading right-wing heroes, including Ayn Rand, Barry Goldwater, William F. Buckley, Jr., Ronald Reagan, and many others. He doesn’t spare himself from the satirist’s pen either, describing in detail his comic run for Governor of New York in 1974—an adventure that ended in near bankruptcy and personal turmoil. “[Tuccille] is damned funny. His book is a quick read; its pages turn quickly. This is pop history, not deep theory, so most of the pauses in the reading are caused by sudden bouts of laughter. What are we to make of a book that, when discussing Rand's comments about pollution, adds, ‘Ayn, you sweet, lovable, crazy bitch’? David Friedman wrote in his foreword to the 25th anniversary edition of this book: ‘If you are looking for a careful scholarly history of the libertarian movement... you had better look somewhere else. But for a vivid and entertaining picture of the early years of libertarianism, Tuccille's book has no equal.’” --The Colorado Freedom Report--www.freecolorado.com “Jerome Tuccille's classic history of contemporary libertarian politics is as informative as it is entertaining. Tuccille takes the reader along as he tells of his political conversion from Objectivist to Miscellaneous to Anarchist. He blends an element of mockery of the fringe in the political sphere with a genuine care for the people and events. I recommend it to anyone who is already familiar with the Libertarian world but needs a little education on the genesis of it.” --freemarket.net “Tuccille has got to be everyone’s favorite right wing individualist anarchist.” --Library Journal
