The contents of the Spring issue are:

Examines these opposing philosophies in the story, characters, and theme of Ayn Rand’s great novel.
“Interview with Boaz Arad on the Israeli Freedom Movement”
Boaz Arad, a founder of and spokesman for the Israeli Freedom Movement, discusses the inception, activities, allies, and successes of the Israeli equivalent of the Tea Party movement.
“Interview with Ellen Kenner and Ed Locke on The Selfish Path to Romance: How to Love with Passion and Reason”
Drs. Ellen Kenner and Ed Locke discuss their new book The Selfish Path to Romance: How to Love with Passion and Reason, covering ground from how altruism destroys relationships, to why people settle for less-than-ideal partners, to how to ask your lover to experiment sexually.
