No description available, Introduction and Notes by Joyce Appleby br br Though he didn t emigrate from England to the colonies until just a few months before the Revolutionary War began Thomas Paine had an enormous impact on that war amp the new nation that emerged from it i Common Sense i the instantly popular pamphlet he published in January argued that the goal of the struggle against the British should be not simply tax reform as many were calling for but complete independence His rousing radical voice was balanced by the equally independence minded but more measured tones of Thomas Jefferson who wrote the Declaration of Independence later that year br br In later works such as i The Rights of Man i i The Age of Reason i amp other selections included in this volume he proved himself a visionary moralist centuries ahead of his time He believed that every human has the natural right to life s necessities amp that government s role should be to provide for those in dire need An impassioned opponent of all forms of slavery he understood that no one in poverty is truly free a lesson still to be learned by many of our leaders today, br br The authorities in power in England during Thomas Paine s lifetime saw him as an agent provocateur who used his seditious eloquence to support the emancipation of slaves and women the demands of working people and the rebels of the French and American Revolutions History on the other hand has come to regard him as the figure who gave political cogency to the liberating ideas of the Enlightenment His great pamphlets i Rights of Man i and i Common Sense i are now recognized for what they are classic arguments in defense of the individual s right to assert his or her freedom in the face of tyranny br br Book Jacket Status Jacketed br br, Thomas Paine was the first international revolutionary His Common Sense was the most widely read pamphlet of the American Revolution and his Rights of Man the most famous defense of the French Revolution sent out a clarion call for revolution throughout the world Paine paid the price for his principles he was outlawed in Britain narrowly escaped execution in France and was vilified as an atheist and a Jacobin on his return to America br This new edition contains the complete texts of both Rights of Man and Common Sense as well as six other powerfully political writings American Crisis I American Crisis XIII Agrarian Justice Letter to Jefferson Letter Addressed to the Addressers on the Late Proclamation and Dissertation on the First Principles of Government all of which illustrate why Paine s ideas still resonate in the modern welfare states of today
