Banned by who? Its been out for 55 years. Don't see it going away any time soon.
It could be banned, perhaps, by a government that absolutely DESPISES individual achievement and is completely convinced that nothing good can ever be accomplished without government's "help". Now, where oh where would we find such a government...
Not here.
Nor anywhere in the world outside his head.

My local library has never heard of Ayn Rand.

'Atlas Shrugged' here is divided in three volumes

'La rivolta di Atlante - il tema'

'La rivolta di Atlante - L'uomo che apparteneva alla terra'

'La rivolta di Atlante - L'Atlantide'

You can order them on online bookstores (like Amazon.it), but none have them in stock. Last edition was published in 2007.

It's quite fun that a book so important and controversial for the American culture is virtually unknow outside U.S. borders...
Yeah, Ayn Rand is almost completely unheard of in Italy. With good reason: when you have Bruno Vespa's, you don't need more plutocratic apologetic.

(Another Italian! Ciao Zaku! )
