In 1831 Alexis de Tocqueville, a young French aristocrat and ambitious civil servant, made a nine-month journey throughout America. The result was “Democracy in America“, a monumental study of the life and institutions of the evolving nation.
Tocqueville looked to the flourishing democratic system in America as a possible model for post-revolutionary France, believing that the egalitarian ideals it enshrined reflected the spirit of the age and even divine will.
Through detailed interviews with “the most informed men” he could meet, he offers an examination of American institutions and the fabric of American life.
His insightful work has become one of the most influential political texts ever written on America and an indispensable authority on democracy.
