Enormously popular and widely read pamphlet, first published in January of 1776, clearly and persuasively argues for American separation from Great Britain and paves the way for the Declaration of Independence. This highly influential landmark document attacks the monarchy, cites the evils of government and combines idealism with practical economic concerns. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

Review: Common Sense (Great Ideas)Nutzerbericht - Lora Leigh - Goodreads
Yay! I read some nonfiction for once! This was surprisingly easy to read, and was definitely thought-provoking as to what role government should have in society. Something every American should read! (Of course, most people probably already have, and I am just a little slow on the uptake). Vollständige Rezension lesen
Review: Common Sense (Great Ideas)Nutzerbericht - Andrew Coles - Goodreads
I had always wanted to read this book, to see why it became a bestseller at the beginning of 1776. His arguments for independence are cogent and very persuasive, although I did have to read some parts several times in order to ascertain the meaning of the 18th-century prose.
