ABOUT THIS BOOK
"A lively discussion of the life and writings of one of the premier revolutionaries of the eighteenth century. [Ayer's] chapters alternate between the externals of Paine's life and career in England, America, and France and analyses of Common Sense, The Rights of Man, The Age of Reason, other significant but less well known writings, and Paine's anticipations of the welfare state."—History: Reviews of New Books

"[An] exciting book about Paine's life and principles."—Christopher Hitchens, Newsday
