Common Sense and Related Writings
This edition of the pamphlet is unique in its inclusion of selections from Paine's other writings from 1775-1776--additional essays that contextualize Common Sense and provide unusual insight on both the writer and the cause for which he wrote. The volume introduction focuses on Paine's childhood and early adult years in England, arguing for the significance of personal experience, environment, career, and religion in understanding Paine's influential political writings.
