The Thomas Paine Reader.

by Thomas Paine (Michael Foot, Issac Kramnick, eds) - £11.99  Penguin Classics (1987)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780140444964 | ISBN 10: 0140444963

All of Paine's supreme masterpieces are included here: The Rights of Man, a magnificent defence of the French Revolution against Edmund Burke and, according to A.J.P.Taylor, 'the best statement of democratic belief in any language'; Common Sense, whose 'sound doctrine and unanswerable reasoning' won thousands to the side of the American rebels; and The Age of Reason (Part One), a notoriously fierce attack on traditional Christianity. Paine's extraordinary versatility and power are equally obvious in his shorter but deeply influential occasional writings - on the abolition of slavery and capital punishment, on constitutional and agrarian reform, on George Washington, bridge-building and many other topics.
