Advocating equality, meritocracy, and social responsibility in plain language, Paine galvanized tens of thousands of readers and changed the framework of political discourse. He was tried and convicted for sedition by the British government for publishing the pamphlet, but his direct style and provocative ideas were hugely influential and continue to speak to modern readers. This edition situates Rights of Man within the discussion of the French Revolution in Britain and enables readers to understand the broader political debates of the 1790s. Appendices include responses to the French Revolution. Paine's response to the Proclamation that declared his writing seditious, contemporary political philosophy by Richard Price and Edmund Burke, and cartoon satirizing Paine.
