The Thomas Paine Reader
Penguin Publishing Group, 1987 M12 1 - 544 páginas
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.

It seems odd that any of what Thomas Paine wrote needed to be said, that in today's climate we take it all as being obvious. This is a great foundational book for the history of American government. Leer comentario completo

Thomas Paine began as a Lockean radical and ended up as pretty much a socialist. His later arguments were unsound. Leer comentario completo
