About This Item

New York: Alfred A Knopf, 1980. Two volumes: 434pp plus index, 401pp plus index. Nice clean set. Alexis de Tocqueville and his friend Gustave de Beaumont visited the United States on behalf of the French government to study American prisons. In their nine months in the U.S. they studied not just the prison system but every aspect of American life, public and private—the political, economic, religious, cultural, and above all social life of the young nation. Clean. Cloth. Near Fine/Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
Multi-volume Set

Synopsis

De la démocratie en Amérique (published in two volumes, the first in 1835 and the second in 1840) is a classic French text by Alexis de Tocqueville on the United States in the 1830s and its strengths and weaknesses. A literal translation of its title is On Democracy in America, but the usual translation of the title is simply Democracy in America. It is regarded as a classical account of the democratic system of the United States and has been used as an important reference ever since.
