This captivating political treatise from Thomas Paine is famous for postulating that political revolution is an acceptable measure in instances that the government does not safeguard the interests of its citizens. While this notion was originally expressed by John Locke and fueled the American Revolution, Rights of Man specifically seeks to defend the French Revolution and its criticism by British thinker Edmund Burke. Debunking Burke’s notions of inherent hereditary wisdom and entitlement to the throne, Paine’s treatise remains a masterwork of political philosophy.
