Synopsis: Common Sense, originally published in early 1776 as an anonymous pamplet, is an important work during the American Revolution. Written by author Thomas Paine, this key document denounced British rule and played an important role in creating popularity for a successful American Revolution to overthrow the British rule. This edition of Common Sense features the original text written by Paine and is presented here in a paperback book format. This is an important book for those interested in the history of the United States and the American Revolutionary War.
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.
