Omtale: Common Sense and Related Writings
Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" is one of the most important primary documents of the Revolutionary era. This edition of the pamphlet includes selections from Paine's other writings from 1775 and 1776 - additional essays that contextualize "Common Sense" provide unusual insight on both the writer and the cause for which he wrote. The volume introduction focuses on Paine's childhood and early adult years in England, arguing for the significance of personal experience, environment, career, and religion in understanding Paine's influential political writings. The volume also includes a glossary, a chronology, illustrations, a selected bibliography, and questions for consideration.
