Thomas Paine and the Promise of America
By: Harvey J. Kaye
Publisher: Hill and Wang, a Division of Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2005
Kaye does much more than set out a biography of Thomas Paine. He follows Paine’s vision throughout U.S. history and shows how it always has, and continues, to influence the way we view our liberty and our dreams for the future. More than a time travel, the book makes it clear that issues and controversies of today have been with us from the inception of our republic. Kaye does an amazing job of gently pushing readers to evaluate their own visions and hopes for our country.
