Democracy in America

Alexis de Tocqueville


In stock


Alexis de Tocqueville came to America in 1831 to see what a great republic was like. What struck him most was the country’s equality of conditions, its democracy. The book he wrote on his return to France, Democracy in America, is both the best ever written on democracy and the best ever written on America. It remains the most often quoted book about the United States because it has something to teach everyone.

This leather reprint is of The University of Chicago Press 2002 edition, translated by Harvey C. Mansfield and Delba Winthrop.
