In Search of the Common Good
Edited by Joyce Chumbley and Leo Zonneveld
Thomas Paine was a man of words. He inspired the American struggle for independence; he defeated the causes of the French Revolution. He was the greatest of the English/American 18th-century radical writers, with timeless works such as Common Sense, The Rights of Man, and The Age of Reason. This book, Thomas Paine: In Search of the Common Good, 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.
