Book about Thomas Paine translated into Persian
Paine’s writings inspired long-term philosophical and labor radicals in Britain and the United States. Liberals, Libertarians, Left Libertarians, Feminists, Democratic Socialists, Social Democrats, Anarchists, Freethinkers, and Progressives often claim him as an intellectual ancestor.
He was the author of “Common Sense” (1776) and “The American Crisis” (1776-1783), two of the most influential pamphlets of the early American Revolution, and helped inspire the Patriots in 1776 to declare their independence from Britain. His ideas reflected the transnational human rights ideals of the Enlightenment era.
