After the publication of Atlas Shrugged in 1957, Ayn Rand turned to nonfiction writing and occasional lecturing. Her aim was to bring her philosophy to a wider audience and to apply it to current cultural and political issues. The taped lectures and the question-and-answer sessions that followed added not only an eloquent new dimension to Ayn Rand’s ideas and beliefs but also a fresh and spontaneous insight into Ayn Rand herself. Ayn Rand Answers is a collection of those enlightening Q&As.

Topics covered include ethics, Ernest Hemingway, modern art, Vietnam, Libertarians, Jane Fonda, religious conservatives, Hollywood communists, atheism, Don Quixote, abortion, gun control, love and marriage, Ronald Reagan, pollution, the Middle East, racism and feminism, crime and punishment, capitalism, prostitution, homosexuality, reason and rationality, literature, drug use, freedom of the press, Richard Nixon, New Left militants, HUAC, chess, comedy, suicide, masculinity, Mark Twain, improper questions, and more.

    " The only problem with this book is that there are still so many questions that I'd like to ask Ayn Rand, especially about the world some 25 years after her death, the well-organzied and concise log of her responses just isn't enough to satiate me. "

    " If you are a fan of Ayn Rand and have read most of her books, then this book is a must-read. This helps to answer some questions that you still had after reading her nonfiction. "

    " This book is awfully biased toward her views but it still explains a lot. I'd love to chat with her about this century and see if any of her staunch objectivism would change. "
