Black full-cloth boards, embossed cover initials and gilt spine titles w/lt. blue accents, moderate shelf, corner wear. Pages good, some discoloration bottom edge. Half-title page partially clipped. Dk. green endpapers. Bind good, moderate cant; hinges intact. Dj some edge wear, rub; unclipped 3.95 w/classic image of Rand at back - protected in new, clear sleeve. Very attractive. The author of Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead presents the essentials of her philosophy. Rand's first non-fiction volume shortly following her magnum opus - Atlas Shrugged. She authoritatively challenges the prevalent philosophical doctrines of our time - and the guilt, panic and despair they create. Rand proposes a new moral philosophy - an ethic of rational self-interest - that stands in sharp opposition to the ethics of self-sacrifice. The fundamentals of this morality are set forth. She categorizes various participants in human history, who have been a force for evil, as being an Attila or a Witch Doctor. An Attila is one who uses physical or brute force to accomplish goals. A Witch Doctor (a philosopher, religious person, or type of intellectual) utilizes the written or spoken word to persuade or intimidate individuals to counter their rational minds, often to the advantage of an Attila. She concludes the title essay by explaining the necessity for a type of new intellectual obtaining prominence. The new intellectual promotes the use of reason to persuade his or her fellow men and women; as opposed to the threat of force in order to persuade by fear. 242 pages. Insured post.

About this Item: Random House, New York, 1959. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition. Stated second printing. Fine blue, full-cloth boards, gilt stamped spine titles and A. R. cover initials on black fields, lt. shelf wear, rub; some spine discoloration. Pages fine. Bind fine; hinges intact. Dj moderate edge wear, rub, some spine sunning; unclipped 4.95, protected in new clear sleeve. Code 1/59 at front flap. The first literary work of one of the most influential philosophers and novelists of the twentieth century. Ayn Rand wrote of her first novel, We the Living, "It is as near to an autobiography as I will ever write. The plot is invented, the background is not. The specific events of Kira's life were not mine: her ideas, her convictions, her values, were and are." We the Living depicts the struggle of the individual against the state, and the impact of the Russian Revolution on three human beings who demand the right to live their own lives and pursue their own happiness. It tells of a young woman's passionate love, held like a fortress against the corrupting evil of a totalitarian state. This classic novel is not a story of politics, but of the men and women who have to struggle for existence behind the banners and slogans. A colossal love story with a massive philosophical framework. Manufactured in the United States of America by The Haddon Craftsman. 433 pages. Insured post. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Book.
