Overview

The Rights of Man: Being an Answer to Mr. Burke's Attack on the French Revolution by Thomas Paine

In The Rights of Man, Thomas Paine defends the representational form of government. He posits that all men are born with God-given rights that cannot be taken from them by any government. Paine's position on inalienable rights played a major role in the Bill of Rights being included in the Constitution. This seminal work is as pertinent today as when it was first written.
