Description

Democracy In America, Volumes I & II, Complete

by Alexis de Tocquevilie



"In 1831, twenty-five year-old Alexis de Tocqueville and Gustave de Beaumont were sent by the French government to study the American prison system. They arrived in New York City in May of that year and spent nine months traveling the United States, taking notes not only on prisons, but on all aspects of American society including the nation's economy and its political system. The two also briefly visited Canada, spending a few days in the summer of 1831 in what was then Lower Canada (modern-day Quebec) and Upper Canada (modern-day Ontario).

After they returned to France in February 1832, Tocqueville and Beaumont submitted their report, entitled Du système pénitentiaire aux États-Unis et de son application en France, in 1833. When the first edition was published, Beaumont, sympathetic to social injustice, was working on another book, Marie, ou l'esclavage aux Etats-Unis (two volumes, 1835), a social critique and novel describing the separation of races in a moral society and the conditions of slaves in America."

About The Author:

"Alexis-Charles-Henri Clérel de Tocqueville (1805-1859) was a French political thinker and historian best known for his 'Democracy in America' (appearing in two volumes: 1835 and 1840) and 'The Old Regime and the Revolution' (1856).

In both of these works, he explored the effects of the rising equality of social conditions on the individual and the state in western societies.

Democracy in America (1835), his major work, published after his travels in the United States, is today considered an early work of sociology and political science." Wikipedia

Reviews :

"No better study of a nation's institutions and culture than Tocqueville's Democracy in America has ever been written by a foreign observer none perhaps as good". The New York Times.
