Written in 1966, ‘The Moon is a Harsh Mistress’ is acclaimed science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein’s story about a lunar colony’s revolt against rule from Earth. Widely admired for its credible presentation of a comprehensively imagined future human society on both the Earth and the moon, it is generally considered one of Heinlein’s major novels as well as one of the most important science fiction novels ever written.
At its core, it is a tale of libertarian revolution and is, along with Ayn Rand’s magnum opus ‘Atlas Shrugged,’ one of the greatest and most influential libertarian works of fiction ever created.
