Collins, Paul. 2005. The Trouble with Tom. London, Bloomsbury.
I purchased The Trouble with Tom in a bookstore in York, England, when I was there for a conference, for just four pounds. It is a wonderful crazy book about American revolutionary figure Tom Paine, his life, various free-thinkers and radicals he interacted with, as well as the strange tail of his remains. I can't summarize it better than to say that my primary thought while reading it was: "John DiNardo would really like this."
Note: the link is to the US edition, rather than the UK edition, which is the one that I read.
