Thomas Paine Lithe

“I couldn’t put the thing down! The story of Thomas Paine – then and now, for the man and his ideas are very much alive
today – stirs the heart, moves the mind, and routs the demon
of despair. The best political book of the year!”

Bill Moyers

“Kaye’s lucid work helps create the free citizen’s memorial
to Thomas Paine, who is still shamefully unacknowledged by
the democratic republic that he lived and died to bring about.”

Christopher Hitchens
