9781615890200: Common Sense: Thomas Paine's Historical Essays Advocating Independence in the American Revolution and Asserting Human Rights and Equ

In Common Sense, Thomas Paine sparked the fire that turned into the American Revolution by starting with "These are the times that try men's souls." His words solidified a nation to believe that freedom was worth fighting for and that diplomacy had been exhausted, leaving no other recourse than war. It presented many unique ideas of the time such as questioning the fairness of a hereditary kingship and the overbearing nature of treating a colony as a revenue source that can be abused. No other book in American history has been read by a larger part of the population at the time of its release than Common Sense, arguably making it the most influential book on the United States.

Review:

"These are the times that try men's souls," begins Thomas Paine's first Crisis paper, the impassioned pamphlet that helped ignite the American Revolution. Published in Philadelphia in January of 1776, Common Sense sold 150,000 copies almost immediately. A powerful piece of propaganda, it attacked the idea of a hereditary monarchy, dismissed the chance for reconciliation with England, and outlined the economic benefits of independence while espousing equality of rights among citizens. Paine fanned a flame that was already burning, but many historians argue that his work unified dissenting voices and persuaded patriots that the American Revolution was not only necessary, but an epochal step in world history.

From the Publisher:

The Library of America is an award-winning, nonprofit program dedicated to publishing America's best and most significant writing in handsome, enduring volumes, featuring authoritative texts. Hailed as "the most important book-publishing project in the nation's history" (Newsweek), this acclaimed series is restoring America's literary heritage in "the finest-looking, longest-lasting edition ever made" (New Republic).
