The Rights of Man, Paperback / softback Book

The Rights of Man Paperback / softback

Edited by Gregory Claeys


Offering more detailed explanatory notes than earlier versions, this edition reprints together for the first time all of Paine's introductions to the versions published in his lifetime.

In his own richly informed Introduction, Claeys elucidates the historical context and the subsequent influence of Paine's text, as well as the major problems in interpreting Paine's theory.

Instructors will find this new edition a worthy counterpoint to the Hackett edition of Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France, edited by J.

G. A. Pocock.
