The revolutionary literary vision that sowed the seeds of Objectivism, Ayn Rand's groundbreaking philosophy, and brought her immediate worldwide acclaim. This modern classic is the story of intransigent young architect Howard Roark, whose integrity was as unyielding as granite...of Dominique Francon, the exquisitely beautiful woman who loved Roark passionately, but married his worst enemy...and of the fanatic denunciation unleashed by an enraged society against a great creator. As fresh today as it was then, Rand’s provocative novel presents one of the most challenging ideas in all of fiction—that man’s ego is the fountainhead of human progress... “A writer of great power. She has a subtle and ingenious mind and the capacity of writing brilliantly, beautifully, bitterly...This is the only novel of ideas written by an American woman that I can recall.”—The New York Times

Ayn Rand's 1943 masterpiece, The Fountainhead is the story of Howard Roark, an architect of enormous talent who turns down one lucrative commission after another because they would force him to modify his designs and compromise his integrity, but in spite of his refusals, or perhaps because of them, he goes on to triumph over many obstacles and establish himself as a master. Douglas Den Uyl's new study, The Fountainhead: An American Novel, is the first volume to exclusively explore Rand's most famous novel and also delve into her theory of individualism, called "objectivism." This theory eschews all government intervention into both the lives of individuals and the workings of a capitalist economy and has inspired a popular philosophical following for Rand over the years.

This Reference Guide takes the form of a Fountainhead Encyclopedia with several independent sections: a complete character dictionary; a dictionary of relationships between characters; a lexicon of the book’s buildings and media outlets; a catalogue of the novel’s various groups and associations; a timeline of the book’s events; a classification of Ayn Rand’s symbols; and a directory of the Fountainhead’s locations. Besides organizing most of the Fountainhead’s facts logically, this Reference Guide also provides a table of Ayn Rand’s fiction & nonfiction, a spreadsheet of works by Objectivist Intellectuals, and a glossary of architectural terms. It also analyzes some of the book’s themes with reference to plot-specifics. So that Fountainhead scholars can cite neutral book facts to support their intellectual – hopefully objectivist – positions.

Prasad writes that the Vedas are the oldest written source of theology and, ultimately, the source of all other theological systems. He takes major religious themes--such as good and evil, the afterlife, resurrection and the name used for god in the religions of Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism and others--and traces them back to the Vedas.
