Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-­59) 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. The book he wrote on his return to France,, 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, not only because it has something to interest and please everyone, but also because it has something to teach everyone. When it was published in 2000, Harvey Mansfield and Delba Winthrop's new translation of —only the third since the original two-­volume work was published in 1835 and 1840—was lauded in all quarters as the finest and most definitive edition of Tocqueville's classic thus far. Mansfield and Winthrop have restored the nuances of Tocqueville's language, with the expressed goal "to convey Tocqueville's thought as he held it rather than to restate it in comparable terms of today.­" The result is a translation with minimal . . .

Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–59) was a French social philosopher. Important in French politics, he was for a short time foreign minister after the revolution of 1848. His renown rests on his classic work Democracy in America (2 vol., 1835), based on observations made during a trip to the United States. A liberal, he believed that political democracy and social equality would ultimately replace Europe's aristocratic institutions.

In 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville and Gustave de Beaumont spent nine months in the U.­S. studying American prisons on behalf of the French government. They investigated not just the prison system but indeed every aspect of American public and private life - the political, economic, religious, cultural, and above all the social life of the young nation. From Tocqueville's copious notes came Democracy in America.

This English-­only edition of Democracy in America features Eduardo Nolla's incisive notes to James Schleifer's English translation of the French text, with an extensive selection of early outlines, drafts, manuscript variants, marginalia, unpublished fragments, and other materials: "This new Democracy is not only the one that Tocqueville presented to the reader of 1835, then to the reader of 1840. . . the reader will see how Tocqueville proceeded with the elaboration of the main ideas of his book.­"

Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–1859) is the author of one of the greatest pieces of political sociology ever written. It is Democracy in America, appearing in two volumes in 1835 and 1840. It would be worth a close study even if it weren’t directly about the 19th-­century American experience.
Democracy (tempered by republican institutions) was rather new in the modern age, appearing in full flower in the United States. But it became rather apparent after the French Revolution that the age of monarchy and aristocratic control of politics was passing onward to a new age.
The aristocrats, as he well knew and understood, had been the partial guardians of liberty as Europe then knew it. The question became could liberty survive an age without monarchy where the people essentially controlled their political fate?
His answer was decisively yes, but with conditions. The conditions that tempered the dangers of democracy to human liberty were present in the American context. He set out to . . .
