Review quote

"Dr. Foner has been extraordinarily successful in recognizing Tom Paine for the complex person that he was....The book not only treats Paine as a participant in two revolutions from a fresh point of view, but it relates the man and his ideas to mass movements and the aspirations of the laboring classes. [It] is sure to be recognized as an authoritative account of the shaping of Anglo-American radical ideology."--Richard B. Morris, Columbia University"The best book on Paine that I have read....Enlightening, interesting, and learned."--Carl Bridenbaugh "Dr. Foner has been extraordinarily successful in recognizing Tom Paine for the complex person that he was....The book not only treats Paine as a participant in two revolutions from a fresh point of view, but it relates the man and his ideas to mass movements and the aspirations of the laboring classes.
