About the Book

Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America was published between 1835 and 1840 and is viewed as one of the most extensive and intuitive books ever written in the United States. Seeing the failed trials of a democratic government in his native France, Tocqueville decided to study a balanced and prosperous democracy to get to know every detail of how it worked. Democracy in America is the result of all his studies. The book was and still is famous because it manages issues that include religion, the press, class structure, money, racism, the role of government, and the judicial system, all of which are just as relevant today as they were during those days. Various colleges in the U.S. have begun to use Democracy in America in political science and history courses.

About Author

Alexis De Tocqueville

Alexis de Tocqueville (29 July 1805- 16 April 1859) was born in Paris France. He was a French political scientist, politician, and historian. As he was born into an aristocratic family, he entered government service by his own choice. After the July Revolution of 1830, his position became unsafe in view of his family's connections to the expelled king, and he began with a nine-month study trip to the United States. Among this, it came his most popular work, Democracy in America, an exceptionally perceptive and intuitive analysis of the American political and social system, as well as of the animation, excesses, and expected future of democracy, with attention to what is happening in France. He was elected to the Chamber of Deputies in 1839 and held different political offices after the Revolution of 1848. The Old Regime and the Revolution (1856), a negative analysis of French political movements, was the primary volume of his incomplete study of the French Revolution.
