Rights of Man, Common Sense, and Other Political Writings (Oxford World's Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thomas Paine was the first international revolutionary. His Common Sense (1776) was the most widely read pamphlet of the American Revolution--and his Rights of Man (1791-2), 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.

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.

Synopsis:

Thomas Paine believed that government must be by and for the people and the protection of their natural rights. From a commitment to natural rights he generated a blueprint for a welfare state. This is a collection Paine's powerful political writings from the American and French revolutions.
