Atlas Shrugged 50th anniversary
According to Pamela at Atlas Shrugs, this week is the 50th anniversary of the publication of Atlas Shrugged. I plan to write a more detailed review of this book (and some of its predecessors) later this year.
I am not actually sure of the exact date of publication. The only evidence I could find was that some of the reviews came out in October of that year.
The book's influence on our society has been enormous. It remains a big seller even today.
This is a copy of the edition I read twenty years ago.
Plans are supposedly underway for an Atlas Shrugged movie starring Angelina Jolie, but that rumor has been circulating for some time.
