Description
Despite being a founder of both the U.S. and the French Republic, the creator of the phrase "United States of America," and author of three of the bestselling publications of 18th-century America, Thomas Paine is arguably the least-known of the American founding fathers. Here the author of The First Heroes tells how this lower-class British tradesman managed not only to have penned a cornerstone of American democracy, Common Sense, but also to have become a revered citizen of the world.

"Thomas Paine has had many biographers, but this is the first book to recover him in his own electrical style.[Craig] Nelson's account brings Paine to life with all the flaws and foibles flaming away amidst the greatness. The story is poignant and the prose is incandescent."óJoseph J. Ellis
