9780312201487: Common Sense: and Related Writings (The Bedford Series in History and Culture)

Thomas Paine’s Common Sense is one of the most important and often assigned primary documents of the Revolutionary era. This edition of the pamphlet is unique in its inclusion of selections from Paine’s other writings from 1775 and 1776 — additional essays that contextualize Common Sense and provide unusual insight on both the writer and the cause for which he wrote. The volume introduction includes coverage of 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, 12 illustrations, a selected bibliography, and questions for consideration.

About the Author:

THOMAS P. SLAUGHTER is Professor of History at Rutgers University. He has written three prize-winning books and his books have won the National Historical Society Prize, the American Revolution Round Table Award, the Society of the Cincinnati Award, and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities Distinguished Author Award. He is a former fellow of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioural Sciences, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and the Shelby Cullom Davis Center

Review:

"This should be a very attractive book for students in American history courses. Not only does Tom Slaughter do a brilliant job in the introduction in making Paine out to be a very believable, human, though flawed person, but also he does a masterful job in helping the reader understand the process through which Paine became radicalized. In addition, Slaughter has made an excellent selection of Paine's essays that round out a picture of an intriguing, but lesser known, American revolutionary."
