by Isabel Paterson
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons 1943
Number of pages: 298
"The God of the Machine" presents an original theory of history and a bold defense of individualism as the source of moral and political progress. When it was published in 1943, Isabel Paterson's work provided fresh intellectual support for the endangered American belief in individual rights, limited government, and economic freedom. Her book placed her in the vanguard of the free-enterprise movement now sweeping the world. It will be essential to students of American history, political theory, and literature.
