Item Description...
Overview
Includes some of the writings that forged the spirit of a new nation, including "Common Sense," "The Crisis," "The Rights of Man," and The Age of Reason."

Publishers Description
Thomas Paine was the impassioned democratic voice of the Age of Revolution, and this volume brings together his best-known works: "Common Sense," "The American Crisis," "Rights of Man," "The Age of Reason," along with a selection of letters, articles and pamphlets that emphasizes Paine's American years. "I know not whether any man in the world," wrote John Adams in 1805, "has had more influence on its inhabitants or affairs for the last thirty years than Tom Paine." The impassioned democratic voice of the Age of Revolution, Paine wrote for his mass audience with vigor, clarity, and "common sense." This Library of America volume is the first major new edition of his work in 50 years, and the most comprehensive single-volume collection of his writings available. Paine came to America in 1774 at age 37 after a life of obscurity and failure in England. Within fourteen months he published "Common Sense," the most influential pamphlet for the American Revolution, and began a career that would see him prosecuted in England, imprisoned and nearly executed in France, and hailed and reviled in the American nation he helped create. In "Common Sense," Paine set forth an inspiring vision of an independent America as an asylum for freedom and an example of popular self-government in a world oppressed by despotism and hereditary privilege. "The American Crisis," begun during "the times that try men's souls" in 1776, is a masterpiece of popular pamphleteering in which Paine vividly reports current developments, taunts and ridicules British adversaries, and enjoins his readers to remember the immense stakes of their struggle. Among the many other items included in the volume are the combative "Forester" letters, written in a reply to a Tory critic of "Common Sense," and several pieces concerning the French Revolution, including an incisive argument against executing Louis XVI. "Rights of Man "(1791-1792), written in response to Edmund Burke's attacks on the French Revolution, is a bold vision of an egalitarian society founded on natural rights and unbound by tradition. Paine's detailed proposal for government assistance to the poor inspired generations of subsequent radicals and reformers. "The Age of Reason" (1794-1795), Paine's most controversial work, is an unrestrained assault on the authority of the Bible and a fervent defense of the benevolent God of deism. Included in this volume are a detailed chronology of Paine's life, informative notes, an essay on the complex printing history of Paine's work, and an index.

More About Thomas Paine & Eric Foner

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Thomas Paine was born in Thetford, England, in 1737, the son of a staymaker. He had little schooling and worked at a number of jobs, including tax collector, a position he lost for agitating for an increase in excisemen's pay. Persuaded by Benjamin Franklin, he emigrated to America in 1774. In 1776 he began his American Crisis series of thirteen pamphlets, and also published the incalculably influential Common Sense, which established Paine not only as a truly revolutionary thinker, but as the American Revolution's fiercest political theorist. In 1787 Paine returned to Europe, where he became involved in revolutionary politics. In England his books were burned by the public hangman. Escaping to France, Paine took part in drafting the French constitution and voted against the king's execution. He was imprisoned for a year and narrowly missed execution himself. In 1802 he returned to America and lived in New York State, poor, ill and largely despised for his extremism and so-called atheism (he was in fact a deist). Thomas Paine died in 1809. His body was exhumed by William Cobbett, and the remains were taken to England for a memorial burial. Unfortunately, the remains were subsequently lost.

Thomas Paine was born in 1737 and died in 1809.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Perhaps the most important political author  Jul 31, 2008
It does not get any better than this as far as political writing is concerned. Thomas Paine's works are required reading, no other author has moved me so. If you only ever read one author in this line of writing, Thomas Paine is your man. Common Sense started a nation, Rights of Man defined the cause for liberty, Age of Reason gave us clarity. All this from a best selling author that forwent all profit, donating the proceeds to the cause of freedom. Certainly there were greats before him. John Locke, Voltaire, and others stand tall on the stage of history, but Paine delivered the message to the masses. Thomas Paine changed men's hearts and stirred revolutions. Modern democratic republics owe a debt of gratitude to Thomas Paine. The world is a better place for having had him.
 
Still as Important and Current as it was 225 years ago, One of the 10 most important books of all time!  Apr 26, 2008
Reading Paine is as important today as it has been for over 200 years. Taxes,social inequality's or pure politics can all be found here in an easily readable and relevant format. This collection of writing's include letters and commentary and some events that history has now sidelined, As it just may happen after you read Common Sense or The Age of Reason you may find your appetite for more satisfied by these insightful inclusions. Right or Left if you believe in America and want to see the path it was meant to take read this book,then grab on to a piece of the reins of power and make it work!
 
Remember our origins  Apr 19, 2008
This is an excellent collection of the evident, palpable reasons for self-rule, written for the common folk of the time in an inspiring style. Now more than ever we need to revisit the foundations of self-rule and individual rights. Freedom is not easy; it is hard. Freedom is not safe; it is dangerous. RS
 
Beautiful collection of Paine's writings  Feb 18, 2008
This is my go-to book whenever I don't know what I want to read next. The only problem with this collection is that it's incomplete, but that's nothing new. I have yet to find a book that has everything Paine ever wrote. The majority of his writings are included, however, so if you're looking for a good Thomas Paine collection, you can't go wrong with this book. As with the other Library of America books I've seen, the end notes are extensive and the binding is top notch.
 
Great Volume  Oct 28, 2007
I am always impressed with the quality of the "Library of America" volumes.....Quality production,quality materials,quality content.....
