This well-researched and even handed book is a chilling account of the resurgence of Ayn Rand's extreme rightwing Objectivist 'philosophy' which exerts a powerful influence on Wall Street, the Republican Party and its presidential candidates.
Basically the tenets of Ayn Rand's Objectivist doctrine are:
No government except the police, courts of law and the armed services.
No regulation of anything by any government.
No Medicare or Medicaid.
No Social Security.
No public schools or public anything.
'Ayn Rand Nation' is a revealing and timely book that should be read by anyone interested in where America could be heading.

The book came quickly and as promised. It is not available in the Netherlands yet, so buying this in the UK, at the offered price was defenitely a good buy. Would buy from this seller again. As the book was bought as a gift for an American friend who introduced me to the writings of Ayn Rand in University, I have not read the book.
