The book in question is Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, which was published in 1776. Its aim was to advocate for American independence through encouraging uprising against the ruling British government. Though presented in a simple layman language, the book was direct and more influential in calling for independence of the American society and it is highly rated as one of the first books to actually highlight the need for American independence from British rule. Through an analysis of the various section of the book, I will highlight how the call for independence was put forth and more so give credence to the statement that his work (Paine’s book) was fundamental in attaining of independence and establishment of the American sovereign federal government.
