Edmund Burke's attack on the French Revolution in his Reflections infuriated Paine, who then rushed into print with his answer, The Rights of Man. Paine hoped this book would do for England what his Common Sense had done for America. He appropriately dedicated the first part to George Washington and the second part to the Marquis de Lafayette. Paine's response caused a furor in England; Paine was tried in absentia, and convicted of seditious libel against the Crown, but was unavailable for hanging, being in France and never returning to England. Rights of Man is the "textbook of radical thought and the clearest of all expositions of the basic principles of democracy.” [PMM 241];
