One of the Founding Fathers of the United States, the English-born political activist Thomas Paine was a philosopher, political theorist and revolutionary. He created two of the most influential pamphlets of the American Revolution, inspiring the rebels in 1776 to declare independence. His ideas reflected Enlightenment-era rhetoric of transnational human rights. The powerful pamphlet ‘Common Sense’ is the all-time bestselling American title, catering for the rebellious demand for independence from Great Britain. This comprehensive eBook presents Paine’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
