Thomas Paine's "Rights of Man"
Library ed [CD-Audio/MP3 Edition]
Thomas Paine's Rights of Man by Christopher Hitchens
Book DescriptionIn "The Rights of Man", first published in 1791, Thomas Paine argued against monarchy and outlined the elements of a successful republic, including public education, pensions, and relief of the poor and unemployed, all financed by income tax. Here, Christopher Hitchens marvels at the book's forethought and revels in its contentiousness. Above all, he shows how "The Rights of Man" forms the philosophical cornerstone of the world's most powerful republic: the United States of America.

A classic Hitchens renewed in trade paperback. "The test of this kind of book is for the reader to be able to open it anywhere and be drawn into the argument; it's a test that Hitchens passes time and time again... He can be devilishly funny, but he is also capable of writing with acid seriousness." The Independent
