Reviews of Democracy in America

Overall customer rating: 5.000

This is a must-read for anyone who wishes to understand the mentality of liberty that exists in America. Tocqueville does an excellent job of illustrating the good and bad of "democracy in America." Essential for any amateur or professional political scientist.


Tocqueville: Still relevant, still worth your time

by Mfitz on Mar 7, 2008

Tocqueville certainly has an interesting story to tell. A young man in his twenties when he wrote the first volume, he was a great intellectual of his time. It is interesting how a book 150 years old can still hold so many truths for the United States and the concept of fledgling democracies-- and still be such an enjoyable read! Don't be daunted by the page count, this enjoyable and informative text flies by, and you'll enjoy every minute of it.
