The New Left cultural movement of the 1960s and early 1970s condemned everything America stood for: individualism, material wealth, science, technology, capitalism. The movement achieved limited political success but it brought about vast cultural changes that remain with us today because it faced little or no fundamental intellectual opposition. Ayn Rand was the exception, and she opposed the New Left in her 1971 anthology of essays The New Left: The Anti-Industrial Revolution. Return of the Primitive is an expanded edition of that original book and contains Rand's two additional essays 'Racism' and 'Global Balkanization.' Also featured are three essays written after her death by Peter Schwartz, analyzing some of the ideologies that the New Left helped spawn, such as multiculturalism and environmentalism.
