200 years after his death, Tom Paine’s legacy will be examined tomorrow by the Socialist History Society and the Thomas Paine Society, in an event at the Conway Hall in Holborn, London. The speakers are Gregory Claeys and John Keane. See here for details.
Verso will be celebrating Paine’s legacy in June with the publication of The Rights of Man and Common Sense, presented by historian Peter Linebaugh, as part of our popular Revolutions series.
Keep an eye out for a further addition to the Revolutions series later in the summer; Hugo Chávez presents Simón Bolívar!
