We the Living (75th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)



This is the story of a ruthless, blazing, and courageous love - a love that flings defiance against the scavengers of human souls.

The 75th anniversary of Ayn Rand's powerful and passionate first novel.

In this tensely dramatic story, Ayn Rand shows what the theories of Communism mean in practice.

We the Living is not a story of politics, but of the men and women who have to struggle for existence behind the Red banners and slogans. It is a picture of what dictatorship-of any kind-does to human beings. What happens to the defiant ones? What happens to those who succumb? Who are the winners in this conflict?

Against a vivid panorama of political revolution and personal revolt, Ayn Rand offers an answer that challenges the modern conscience.
