Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's fourth and final novel, and her longest published work. Set in a fictional dystopian future, Atlas Shrugged paints a picture of what the United States would look like if its best skilled workers, in refusal of being taxed, simply stopped doing their jobs. The title comes from the mythological figure of the Titans named Atlas, who was charged by the gods to hold up the sky and is often depicted as carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. Of all Rand's novels, Atlas Shrugged is the most infused with her personal philosophical system called Objectivism, which she would later outline in her 1961 For the New Intellectual.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included. (Inventory #: AR033)
