Description
 
Traces the revolutionary spirit that runs throughout Amer. history, & whose founding father & greatest advocate was Thomas Paine. Shows how Paine turned Amer. into radicals -- & how we have remained radicals ever since. Through writings like “Common Sense” -- & phrases such as “The sun never shined on a cause of greater worth” & “These are the times that try men’s souls” -- he not only turned Amer. colonial rebellion into a revolutionary war but also articulated an Amer. identity. Beginning with Paine’s life & ideas & following their vigorous influence through to our own day, this book reveals how generations of radical & liberal Amer. turned to Paine for inspiration as they endeavored to expand Amer. freedom, equality, & democracy.
