9780143122005: Common Sense (Penguin Civic Classics)

Webster's paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Hungarian thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of Common Sense by Thomas Paine was edited for three audiences. The first includes Hungarian-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL? or TOEIC? preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Hungarian speakers enrolled in English speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Hungarian in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement? (AP?) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Hungarian Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Hungarian or English.

Product Description:

The time is 1775 and there is conflict on the American continent. The colonists are feeling the weight of British rule, yet are uncertain as to what they should do about it. It is a serious time of contemplation and discussion. Then, comes Thomas Paine, inspired by the simple axiom: Man knows no master save creating Heaven, Or those whom choice and common good ordain. —James Thomson, "Liberty" From that truth, Paine extrapolates the thoughts into the situation and published this great work. For many years it was the best-selling book of all time in America. It is no less importance today than it was when written. It deals, not with situations or with opinions, but appeals to truth as a real and constant principle of human existence. It is that perspective that launched the Revolution and brought The United States into being.

Review:

"No writer has exceeded Paine in ease and familiarity of style; in perspicuity of expression, happiness of elucidation, and in simple unassuming language." --Thomas Jefferson

Book Description Penguin Books, 2012. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The radical pamphlet that helped incite the American Revolution Penguin presents a series of six portable, accessible, and--above all--essential reads from American political history, selected by leading scholars. Series editor Richard Beeman, author of The Penguin Guide to the U.S. Constitution , draws together the great texts of American civic life to create a timely and informative mini-library of perennially vital issues. Whether readers are encountering these classic writings for the first time, or brushing up in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, these slim volumes will serve as a powerful and illuminating resource for scholars, students, and civic-minded citizens. Common Sense is the book that created the modern United States, as Paine's incendiary call for Americans to revolt against British rule converted millions to the cause of independence and set out a vision of a just society. Published anonymously in 1776, six months before the Declaration of Independence, Common Sense was a radical and impassioned call for America to free itself and set up an independent republican government. Savagely attacking hereditary kingship and aristocratic institutions, Paine urged a new beginning for his adopted country in which personal freedom and social equality would be upheld and economic and cultural progress encouraged. 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 embodied the democratic spirit he advocated.
