More About The Thomas Paine Reader by Thomas Paine; Michael Foot; Isaac Kramnick
 
 
 
Overview
This major collection demonstrates the extent to which Thomas Paine was an inspiration to the Americans in their struggle for independence, a passionate supporter of the French Revolution and perhaps the outstanding English radical writer of his age. It contains all of Paine's major works including Rights of Man, his groundbreaking defence of the revolutionary cause in France; Common Sense, which won thousands over to the side of the American rebels; and the first part of The Age of Reason, a ferocious attack on Christianity. The shorter pieces--on capital punishment, social reform and the abolition of slavery--also confirm the great versatility and power of this master of democratic prose.
