Book Description HARPER PERENNIAL, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Alexis de Tocqueville's monumental Democracy in America is as relevant today as when it was first published in the mid-19th century, and it remains the most comprehensive, penetrating, and astute picture of American life, politics, and morals ever written. This special edition contains the entire two volumes of Democracy in America, based on the second revised and corrected text of the 1961 French edition, meticulously edited by distinguished Tocqueville scholar J. P. Mayer. Also featured are extensive appendices, including Toqueville's commentary on Cherbuliez's On Democracy in Switzerland. Alexis de Tocqueville (1805 - 1859) was born in 1805 in Verneuil, France. A historian and political scientist, he came to the United States in 1831 to report on the prison system. His experiences would later become the basis for Democracy in America. "[George Lawrence's] wonderful style has given us a work that will be a standard for many years." -- Library Journal--Library Joural. Seller Inventory # AAS9780061127922
