Published to commemorate the bicentennial of Thomas Paine’s death, these texts have remained two of the most influential arguments for liberty in political thought. Common Sense is a pamphlet that Paine wrote in support of American independence. Due to its original and simple style it spread like wildfire through the colonies, inspiring the American Revolution. The Rights of Man is Paine’s passionate defense of the French Revolution that led to his trial for sedition and libel. The acclaimed historian Peter Linebaugh provides an original examination of Paine’s thought and legacy.

One of the premier writers during the revolutionary crisis. Paine's Common Sense alone is worth buying this volume, but to have a collection of his other writings as well is a great bonus. Ler crítica na íntegra
