Return of the Primitive: The Anti-Industrial Revolution (MP3 CD Audio Book)

By Ayn Rand


Additional essays by Peter Schwartz.

Read by Bernadette Dunne.

This expanded version of The New Left contains all of Ayn Rand's original material.

In the original edition, Ayn Rand named the intellectual roots of the New Left. Her articles ranged from a discussion of the fundamental goals of the student "rebellion," to an examination of egalitarianism in our "age of envy," to a dissection of the evils of "Progressive" education.

This new edition underscores the continuing relevance of Ayn Rand's analysis of the period. Now, Mr. Schwartz writes, "The trappings of the New Left are gone, but its substance has endured." The same "anti-industrial revolution" is being waged today—primarily in the form of two powerful movements: environmentalism and multiculturalism, which "are scions of the New Left, zealously carrying on its campaign of sacrificing progress to primitivism." Mr. Schwartz develops this theme of primitivism in each of his three essays: "The Philosophy of Privation," "Multicultural Nihilism" and "Gender Tribalism."

Read this book and discover how our culture is being slowly dragged back to the age of primitivism—and what needs to be done to establish the opposite: an age of reason, individualism and progress.
