Rights of Man

Written by Thomas Paine | Narrated by Bernard Mayes
A discussion on democracy wouldn’t be complete without this classic! Written by the brilliant and influential political activist and theorist behind Common Sense, this treatise stands as a passionate defense of human rights, a government’s role in safeguarding them, and the value of revolution.

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Written in the late eighteenth century as a reply to Edmund Burke’s Reflections on the French Revolution, Thomas Paine’s Rights of Man is unquestionably one of the great classics on the subject of democracy. A vindication of the French Revolution and a critique of the British system of government, it defended the dignity of the common man in all countries against those who would discard him as one of the “swinish multitude.”

Paine created a language of modern politics that brought important issues to the working classes. Employing direct, vehement prose, Paine defends popular rights, national independence, revolutionary war, and economic growth—all of which were considered, at the time, to be dangerous and even seditious issues. His vast influence is due in large measure to his eloquent literary style, noted for its poignant metaphors, vigor, and rational directness.
