Boek cover The Age of Reason van Thomas Paine (Paperback)
Being an Investigation of True and Fabulous Theology
''Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst,'' declared Thomas Paine, adding, ''every other species of tyranny is limited to the world we live in; but this attempts to stride beyond the grave, and seeks to pursue us into eternity.'' Paine's years of study and reflection on the role of religion in society culminated with his final work, The Age of Reason. This coolly reasoned polemic influenced religious thinking throughout the world at the dawn of the nineteenth century, and its resonance remains undiminished by time. The selfsame humanist and egalitarian...

Boek cover Rights of Man, Common Sense, and Other Political Writings van Thomas Paine (Paperback)
`An army of principles will penetrate where an army of soldiers cannot . . . it will march on the horizon of the world and it will conquer.' Thomas Paine was the first international revolutionary. His Common Sense (1776) was the most widely read pamphlet of the American Revolution; his Rights of Man (1791-2) was the most famous defence of the French Revolution and sent out a clarion call for revolution throughout the world. He paid the price for his principles: he was outlawed in Britain, narrowly escaped execution in France, and was villified as an atheist and a Jacobin on his return...

Boek cover The Great Debate van Yuval Levin (Paperback)
Edmund Burke, Thomas Paine, and the Birth of Right and Left
For more than two centuries, our political life has been divided between a party of progress and a party of conservation. In The Great Debate , Yuval Levin explores the origins of the left/right divide by examining the views of the men who best represented each side of that debate at its outset: Edmund Burke and Thomas Paine. In a ground-breaking exploration of the roots of our political order, Levin shows that American partisanship originated in the debates over the French Revolution, fueled by the fiery rhetoric of these ideological titans. Levin masterfully shows how Burke's and Paine's...

Boek cover Gezond verstand; common sense van Thomas Paine (Paperback)
gericht tot de inwoners van Amerika
Begin 1776 verscheen in Philadelphia het anonieme pamflet Common Sense. De auteur, naar later bleek de Engelsman Thomas Paine (1737-1809), riep hierin de Amerikanen op zich af te scheiden van Engeland. Binnen korte tijd werden 150.000 exemplaren van het pamflet verkocht en een halfjaar later was de Amerikaanse onafhankelijkheid een feit. Kern van Common Sense is de kritiek op het Engelse koningshuis en op de instelling van de monarchie in het algemeen. Gezond verstand is de eerste Nederlandse uitgave van dit historische pamflet en gaat vergezeld van de Engelse tekst. De vertaling van Lex...

Boek cover Common Sense, the Rights of Man, the Age of Reason (Complete and Unabridged) van Thomas Paine (Paperback)
Paine's immensely popular and influential pamphlet Common Sense helped inspire the American colonists. Of Paine John Adams said, ''Without the pen of the author of Common Sense, the sword of Washington would have been raised in vain.'' The Rights of Man'' was in part a defense of the French Revolution. And in The Age of Reason Paine gives his views on religion. ''Part of Paine's work was to render complex ideas intelligible to average readers of the day, with clear, concise writing unlike the formal, learned style favored by many of Paine's contemporaries.''

Boek cover Common Sense & The Rights of Man - The Voice of the American Revolution van Thomas Paine (Onbekend)
Words of a Visionary That Sparked the Revolution and Remained the Core of American Democratic Principles
Paine's visionary call for republicanism and social welfare was generations ahead of its time when ''Rights of Man'' was published. According to Paine - Government's sole purpose is safeguarding the individual and his/her inherent, inalienable rights; each societal institution that does not benefit the nation is illegitimate—especially monarchy and aristocracy. Human rights originate in Nature, thus, rights cannot be granted via political charter, because that implies that rights are legally revocable, hence, would be privileges. Common Sense was published anonymously on January 10, 1776,...

Boek cover Thomas Paines Rights of Man van Christopher Hitchens (Paperback)
A Biography
Thomas Paine is one of the greatest political advocates in history. Declaration of the Rights of Man, first published in 1791, is the key to his reputation. Inspired by his outrage at Edmund Burke's attack on the uprising of the French people, Paine's text is a passionate defence of man's inalienable rights. In Rights of Man Paine argues against monarchy and outlines the elements of a successful republic, including public education, pensions and relief of the poor and unemployed, all financed by income tax. Since its publication, Rights of Man has been celebrated, criticized, maligned and...
