Thomas Paine, revolutionary and philosopher, whose bicentenary falls in 2009.
We have published a number of different titles concerned with this great man. These Are The Times: A Life of Thomas Paine is an original screenplay byTrevor Griffiths, which follows Tom Paine from persecution in England, to the American War of Independence, to Revolutionary France. It has recently been adapted for theatre and A New World makes its premiere at Shakespeare’s Globe this summer (29th August – 9th October).
Another recent publication is Thomas Paine: In Search of the Common Good. The book offers reflections on his life and writings by a group of experts and specialists who came together at a Thomas Paine Colloquium held at the United Nations in New York.
All these titles and more can be found on our Thomas Paine page.
