5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastically Interesing Rand Commentary, February 11, 1999
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Feminist Interpretations of Ayn Rand (Re-Reading the Canon) (Paperback)
Some browsers might be interested in an open letter that Nathaniel Branden <NathanielBranden@compuserve.com> wrote to Chris Sciabarra concerning this book:
------------------
Dear Everyone, Now that it's in the bookstores (or available through amazon.com), I urge you to buy and read FEMINIST INTERPRETATIONS OF AYN RAND. The collection is fantastically interesting--and important. (Forget the fact that I am one of the contributors; this is not self-serving.) Naturally, one likes some essays more than others, and some of the pieces are anything but friendly to Rand, and that's all right too, because what matters is that the average intellectual level of the pieces is very high--and the editors are to be saluted for assembling this marvelous collection and for taking another step in closing the gap between AR and the academy. I have no words to convey the rush I experienced while reading this book. Those poor souls at ARI do not understand that this book, criticisms of Rand and all, will do more to advance the cause of Rand's work than all their true-believer praise and idiotic adulation. Have fun. I did. And (if anyone cares) you can quote me. Nathaniel
