a| Thomas Paine often declared himself a citizen of the world. This new Norton Critical Edition presents Paine and his writing within the transatlantic and global context of the revolutionary ideas and movements of his time.
a| Paine's loyalties were tied to universal and self-evident principles rather than to particular groups or nations. This Norton Critical Edition shows how his fury at the British Empire, including its injustices to South Asians and Africans, shaped his first best seller, Common Sense, and how his direct involvement with the French Revolution pushed his ideas toward a unique form of democratic radicalism. Together with his rejection of organized religion, Paine's radicalism resulted in his being one of the most hated men in both monarchial Britain and republican America.
a| This volume includes J. M. Opal's introduction, "Thomas Paine and the Revolutionary Enlightenment, 1770s-1790s," which provides essential biographical and contextual detail across three tumultuous decades. Paine's most important works-from Common Sense (1776) through Agrarian Justice (1796)-are reprinted and are accompanied by explanatory annotations. Supporting materials include a wide range of documents from the turbulent years following the American, French, and Haitian revolutions. These include Pennsylvania's gradual emancipation statute of 1780, an ex-slave's impassioned call for revolutionary violence against European imperialists, and a British conservative's witty rejoinder to Paine's vision of a brave new world.
a| Four major interpretations of Paine's work are provided by Nathan R. Perl-Rosenthal, Robert A. Ferguson, Gary Kates, and Gregory Claeys. A Selected Bibliography and an Index are also included.
a| Each Norton Critical Edition includes an authoritative text, contextual and source materials, and a wide range of interpretations-from contemporary perspectives to the most current critical theory-as well as a bibliography and, in many cases, a chronology of the author's life and work.
