No Paine, No Gain

My article on Thomas Paine is just out in the latest issue of BBC History Magazine. US and Canadian readers of this blog can catch a modified version of this article (complete with obligatory photo of Barrack Obama) in the latest BBC Knowledge Magazine. I’m also on BBC History Magazine’s podcast later in June talking about Paine (link to follow.)

The Paine-related fun doesn’t stop there. Aside from my talk at the Thetford Tom Paine festival on 6 June, I’ll also be taking part in the Tom Paine readathon on the same day at 3.30.

All this, of course, to tie in with the publication of my A Radical History of Britain on the 4th June.
