  • "A futuristic science fiction novella. Man is in a dark age, because of earlier socialistic values. Technology is carefully planned and rarely allowed to advance. Individualism has almost ceased to exist. The theme of individualism versus collectivism runs throughout the novella."@en
  • "Individualism: He lived in the dark ages of the future. In a loveless world he dared to love the woman of his choice. In an age that had lost all trace of science and civilization he had the courage to seek and find knowledge. But these were not the crimes for which he world be hunted. He was marked for death because he had committed the unpardonable sin: he had stood both form the mindless human herd. He was a man alone. [In this novel, the author examines a frightening future] in which individuals have no name, no independence, and no values].-Back cover."
  • ""A work of haunting lyrical beauty, Anthem is Ayn Rand's timeless story of the triumph of the individual spirit. First published in 1938 -- and often compared with Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's Brave New World -- Anthem has inspired millions with Rand's heroic view of human potential"--Container."
  • "Equality 7-2521 lives in the Dark Ages of the future, where all decisions are made by committee, all people live in collectives, all traces of individualism have been wiped out. But the spark of individual thought and freedom still burns in Equality 7-2521, a passion which he has been taught to call sinful. In a purely egalitarian world, he dares to stand forth from the herd -- to think and choose for himself, to discover electricity, and to love the woman of his choice. Now he has been marked for death for committing the ultimate sin: in a world where the great "we" reign supreme, he has rediscovered the lost and holy word "I". This provocative book is an anthem sung in praise of man's ego."@en
