9780060956660: Democracy in America (Perennial Classics)

The complete edition based on the revised and corrected text of the 1961 French edition

Originally penned in the mid-eighteenth century by Frenchman Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America remains the most penetrating and astute picture of American life, politics, and morals ever written, as relevant today as when it first appeared in print nearly two hundred years ago. This edition, meticulously edited by the distinguished de Tocqueville scholar J. P. Mayer, is widely recognized as the preeminent translation.

Product Description:

In 1831 Tocqueville set out from post-revolutionary France on a journey across America that would take him 9 months and cover 7,000 miles. The result was DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA: a subtle and prescient analysis of the life and institutions of 19th-century America. Tocqueville's study of the strengths and weaknesses of an evolving democratic society has been quoted by every American president since Eisenhower. It remains a key point of reference for any discussion of the American nation or the democratic system.

Review:

"No better study of a nation's institutions and culture than Tocqueville's "Democracy in America" has ever been written by a foreign observer." -"The New York Times" "The Bradley edition of Tocqueville's classic is the best now available in English." -Charles A. Beard "Professor Bradley's edition should remain the standard one for our time." -F. O. Matthiessen With an Introduction by Alan Ryan
