THE fullest edition of Paine's works is that edited by Philip S. Foner , The Life and Major Writings of Thomas Paine (Secaucus, NJ, 1948), 2 volumes. A. Owen Aldridge, author of Man of Reason: The Life of Thomas Paine ( London, 1960) and Thomas Paine's American Ideology (Cranbury, NJ and London, 1984), has done more than any other scholar since Moncure Conway, who wrote in the 1890s, to identify new Paine material and reassess the status of previously attributed works.
