Feminist Interpretations of Ayn Rand by Mimi Reisel GladsteinThis landmark anthology is the first to engage critically the writings of Ayn Rand from feminist perspectives. The interdisciplinary feminist strategies of re-reading Rand range from the lightness of camp to the darkness of de Sade, from postandrogyny to poststructuralism. A highly charged dialogue on Rands legacy provides the forum for a reexamination of feminism and its relationship to egoism, individualism, and capitalism. Rands place in contemporary feminism is assessed through comparisons with other twentieth-century feminists, such as de Beauvoir, Wolf, Paglia, Eisler, and Gilligan. What results is as provocative in its implications for Rands system as it is for feminism.
