"Do I think that Objectivism will be the philosophy of the future? I would say yes, but..."-Ayn Rand to Playboy Magazine, 1964.

"My views will probably be the norm in the future, but not right now."-Ayn Rand to Johnny Carson, 1967.

Will they? "The Age of Rand" describes what Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism, will mean in practice-for good and ill. Rand expressed her controversial ideas in her best-selling novels, "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead." Every year, more commentators debate those ideas, often heatedly.

Frederick Cookinham asks questions no author has asked before:

Would Objectivists destroy the environment in favor of rampant development?
Why will Objectivist civilization be built on the oceans and in space?
Is Objectivism a "Nietzschean Superman" philosophy?

Ayn Rand often said, "Check your premises, and watch your implications!" Explore, in "The Age of Rand," the astounding implications of this fast-growing and provocative new system of ideas. Some philosophy will dominate this new century-be prepared if it turns out to be Ayn Rand's.

"Frederick Cookinham has written something of great worth to thousands who have been affected by Rand's work."-Andrea Millen Rich, Laissez Faire Books.
