Summary: "Thomas Paine's powerful essays inspired two of the most important revolutions in history, in America and France. America's first bestseller, 'Common Sense' (1776) is a ringing denunciation of corrupt monarchies...'Rights of Man' (1791) is a fiery condemnation of a former friend's writings and a further exploration of Paine's beliefs in innovation, free thought, and democracy..."--P.
