Ayn Rand's fourth and most expansive novel. The theme of Atlas Shrugged is that independent thinking, and the creativity and inventiveness that comes from this, is the motor that runs the world. In Atlas Shrugged, Rand argues that if the "men of the mind" went on strike, the motor of the world would shut down and civilization would fall apart. This book is an important acheivement for Rand, because it is the most comprehensive basis for her philosophy Objectivism which champions individual rights and the only political system that protects them Capitalism.
