Item description for Tom Paine (H Books) by Harry Harmer...
Always Tom to admirers and enemies alike, Thomas Paine (1737-1809) is perhaps the most famous unknown figure of the American Revolution, ruthlessly expunged from the history of the birth of the United States while the nation was still young. When the prizes were given out, Paine was always somewhere else, forgotten, refused an invitation to the celebrations. But when the image has faded almost to invisibility, Paine is rediscovered, singing in his optimism, 'We have it in our power to begin the world over again.'
