Claeys has done a fine job of situating Paine’s famous text in the intellectual and practical context, drawing out the most important themes, and referring the reader to the best secondary literature. . . . An excellent textbook for undergraduate courses in political theory. --James Tully, McGill University

I was temped to give it 4* because of the tax section where he, in my opinion, goes into detail to much about the money and where it should go. I understood though at the end when he also explains why the printing of the book was delayed and only appeared after the Mr Pitt's address to the English Parliment
Paine brings down all of Burke's arguments, who believed that monarchy and aristocracy and the best choices when compared to a republic. Paine also dismantles Burke's belief that a hereditary government has a right to dictate it's policy upon future generations.
He goes on to explain that the Rights of Man are something you are born with. No previous generation or government can take those away.
It is beautifully written and argumented
