A powerful new translation of de Tocqueville''s influential look at the origins of modern France
In this penetrating study, Alexis de Tocqueville considers the French Revolution in the context of France''s history. de Tocqueville worried that although the revolutionary spirit was still alive and well, liberty was no longer its primary objective. Just as the first Republic had fallen to Napoleon and the second had succumbed to his nephew Napoleon III, he feared that all future revolutions might experience the same fate, forever imperiling the development of democracy in France.
Author Bio
Alexis De Tocqueville
Alexis Charles Henri Maurice Clerel de Tocqueville was born into an aristocratic family and studied law. In 1831 he and a colleague were sent to the United States to study the penal system. Tocqueville traveled far and wide across America, and his experiences became the basis for a classic work DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA, which described the system of government and the character of its citizens with uncanny facility and which, for generations, has been cited by critics as one of the most perceptive analyses ever. Tocqueville returned to France, wrote a book on the French Revolution, was awarded the Legion of Honor and was made a member of the French Academy.
