Barbara Branden Posted August 14, 2006 Share Posted August 14, 2006 Chris Sciabarra writes:New Book: Ayn Rand at 100In my post "This and That," I referred to a forthcoming anthology edited by Edward W. Younkins entitled Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged: A Philosophical and Literary Companion, which will be published next year by Ashgate. An essay I've written, entitled "Atlas Shrugged: Manifesto for a New Radicalism," appears in that volume. It is actually a much longer and more comprehensive version of an essay that appeared in the January-February 2005 issue of The Freeman. A PDF version of the shorter Freeman article can be found here. The Freeman essay also makes an appearance in a new collection, edited by my friend and colleague, Tibor R. Machan, entitled Ayn Rand at 100 (okay, okay, it's a little late). The book makes its debut on Wednesday, August 16, 2006. And it is being published by the Liberty Institute in India!!! In fact, Tibor will be giving several talks next week to launch the book in New Delhi, Mumbai, and Chennai.The book synopsis states: "Eminent authors discuss the impact [Ayn Rand] has had on their contribution to philosophy and, most importantly, Rand’s Indian connection." Here is the Table of Contents:Preface : Tibor R. Machan: Ayn Rand at 100Chapter 1: Bibek Debroy: Ayn Rand - The Indian ConnectionChapter 2: Tibor R. Machan: Rand and Her Significant ContributionsChapter 3: J. E. Chesher: Ayn Rand’s Contribution to Moral PhilosophyChapter 4: George Reisman: Ayn Rand and Ludwig von MisesChapter 5: Robert White: Ayn Rand’s Contribution to Liberal ThoughtChapter 6: Roderick T. Long: Ayn Rand and Indian PhilosophyChapter 7: Chris Matthew Sciabarra: Ayn Rand - A Centennial AppreciationChapter 8: Fred Seddon: Ayn Rand - An AppreciationChapter 9: Elaine Sternberg: Why Ayn Rand Matters: Metaphysics, Morals, and LibertyChapter 10: Douglas Den Uyl : Rand's First Great Hit, The FountainheadI've not read all of the other essays in the collection, but I suspect it's going to be a fine anthology.
