Reason (10 October 2009)

“The unconservative Ayn Rand and her relationship to the American right… Sources from The New York Times to the United Kingdom’s Guardian agree that 2009 is the Year of Ayn Rand. Fortuitously surfing the wave of Rand fascination is the first thorough and largely unbiased book about her life and ideas by a serious American academic, one neither a personal friend nor a bitter enemy of the controversial Russian-born novelist and philosopher.”
