Common Sense: FREE Narrative Of The Life Of Frederick Douglass By Himself, Illustrated [Quora Media] (100 Greatest Novels of All Time Book 49) (English Edition) download gratisDoor: Thomas Paine
"It was published anonymously on January 10, 1776, at the beginning of the American Revolution, and became an immediate sensation. It was sold and distributed widely and read aloud at taverns and meeting places. In proportion to the population of the colonies at that time (2.5 million), it had the largest sale and circulation of any book published in American history. As of 2006, it remains the all-time best selling American title, and is still in print today. Published six months before the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Paine’s Common Sense was a radical and impassioned call for America to free itself from British rule and set up an independent republican government.His pamphlet was the first to speak directly to a mass audience—it went through fifty-six editions within a year of publication—and its assertive and often caustic style both embodied the democratic spirit he advocated, and converted thousands of citizens to the cause of American independence. Throughout history, very few books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves—and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. Thomas Paine's Common Sense is amongst them."
