Book Overview

A volume of Thomas Paine's most essential works, showcasing one of American history's most eloquent proponents of democracy.

Upon publication, Thomas Paine's modest pamphlet Common Sense shocked and spurred the foundling American colonies of 1776 to action. It demanded freedom from Britain--when even the most fervent patriots were only advocating tax reform. Paine's daring prose paved the way for the Declaration of Independence and, consequently, the Revolutionary War. For without the pen of Paine, as John Adams said, the sword of Washington would have been wielded in vain.

Later, his impassioned defense of the French Revolution, Rights of Man, caused a worldwide sensation. Napoleon, for one, claimed to have slept with a copy under his pillow, recommending that a statue of gold should be erected to Paine] in every city in the universe.

Here in one volume, these two complete works are joined with selections from Pain's other major essays, The Crisis, The Age of Reason, and Agrarian Justice.

Includes a Foreword by Jack Fruchtman Jr.
and an Introduction by Sidney Hook
