This is a revised and updated edition of the classic works of Paine.
The classic Paine texts--Common sense, The Rights of man, The Age of reason--as well as the first of his papers on The Crisis of 1776. Kuklick (humanities, U. of Pennsylvania) provides an introduction to the principal themes of each text. Essentially a student-oriented collection. Acidic paper. Annotation c.
