2.0 out of 5 stars not a biography, 30 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thomas Paine (Paperback)
I was looking for a biography of Thomas Paine. What I found in this work was a critique of Paine's writings, with a limited amount of biographical material. This book might be helpful if you're looking for a reiew of Paine's work, but this is not an objective overview. All through the work, Ayer makes a point of telling us whether he agrees, or disagrees, with Paine, and his opinions are informed by a sceptical view of conservative thinking. I won't be passing this book on.
