The New Left: The Anti-Industrial Revolution is a collection of essays by Ayn Rand. Most of the essays originally appeared in The Objectivist. It was first published in 1971. A revised edition, adding the essay "The Age of Envy," appeared in 1975. The essays argue that religion and similar forces harm the growth of humanity.

In 1999, an expanded edition titled Return of the Primitive: The Anti-Industrial Revolution, appeared. It was edited by Peter Schwartz and adds a new introduction by Schwartz, as well as two essays by Rand ("Racism" was included in The Virtue of Selfishness, and "Global Balkanization" was in The Voice of Reason) and three by Schwartz ("Gender Tribalism", "The Philosophy of Privation", and "Multicultural Nihilism").


The book received little attention from reviewers when it was first released. Rand bibliographer Mimi Reisel Gladstein said the book's topics "seem dated", but "as Rand's predictions about the negative results of some of the practices she rails against come about, one begins to appreciate the perceptiveness of her logic."
