Description

In 1831 Tocqueville set out from post-revolutionary France on a journey across America that would take him nine months and cover 7000 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 remains a key point of reference for any discussion of the American nation or the democratic system.
