Democracy in America by Alexis de Tocqueville( Book )

24 editions published between 1959 and 1988 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From America's call for a free press to its embrace of the capitalist system, Democracy in America--first published in 1835--enlightens, entertains, and endures as a brilliant study of our national government and character. Philosopher John Stuart Mill called it "among the most remarkable productions of our time." Woodrow Wilson wrote that de Tocqueville's ability to illuminate the actual workings of American democracy was "possibly without rival." For today's readers, de Tocqueville's concern about the effect of majority rule on the rights of individuals remains deeply meaningful. His shrewd observations about the "almost royal prerogatives" of the president and the need for virtue in elected officials are particularly prophetic. His profound insights into the great rewards and responsibilities of democratic government are words every American needs to read, contemplate, and remember.

Brilliantly and searchingly examines the nature of French society in the years before the Revolution. Why did the Revolution break out? Was it inevitable, and if so, why? How was France really changed by the Revolution? Why did the intellectuals become enemies of the old French state and society? Why was the French nobility so estranged from the French people? Why, in short, were Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette doomed to the guillotines of the Revolution? In this book, Tocqueville examined these and many other questions, and in large measure definitively answered them

"Las sociedades políticas son, no lo que les hacen las leyes, sino lo que les preparan a ser de antemano los sentimientos, las creencias, las ideas, los hábitos de corazón y de mente de los hombres que las componen, lo que el temperamento y la educación han hecho de ellos. Si esta verdad no sale de todas las partes de mi libro, si no lleva a los lectores a examinarse continuamente a sí mismos, si no les muestra a cada instante, sin hacer alarde de tener la pretensión de enseñarles, cuáles son los sentimientos, las ideas, las costumbres que únicamente pueden conducir a la prosperidad y a la libertad pública, cuáles son los vicios y los errores que, por contra, les apartan irrefutablemente de ellas, no habré alcanzado el principal y, por así decir, el único objetivo que tengo en vista". Toda la obra de Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) es una reflexión sobre la libertad o su ausencia, el despotismo. Tanto en La democracia en América (1835 y 1840), como en El Antiguo Régimen y la Revolución (1856), obra que dejó inacabada, explora la forma de conseguir que el régimen democrático posterior a 1789 sea tan igualitario como libre. Nadie como Tocqueville ha sabido defender la libertad y anunciar los peligros que pueden ir unidos a construir una democracia basada exclusivamente en la igualdad, el individualismo y el bienestar material. La democracia en América ha pasado de ser "el mejor libro nunca escrito sobre los Estados Unidos" a ser también "el mejor libro sobre la democracia."
