Democracy in America (1835--1840) is arguably the most perceptive and influential book ever written about American politics and society. This Library of America volume presents Alexis de Tocqueville's masterpiece in an entirely new translation, the first to capture fully the precision and grace of his style while providing a rigorous and faithful rendering of his profound ideas and observations. A young aristocratic lawyer, Tocqueville came to the United States in 1831 with his friend and fellow magistrate Gustave de Beaumont to study American penitentiary systems. During their nine-month visit they conducted interviews with more than 200 people on American politics, law, and social practices. After returning to France, Tocqueville read hundreds of books and documents while reflecting on what his trip had revealed about the "great democratic revolution" that was transforming the Western world. In Democracy in America he vividly describes the unprecedented "equality of conditions" found in the United States and explores its implications for European society in the emerging modern era. His book provides enduring insight into the political consequences of widespread property ownership, the potential dangers to liberty inherent in majority rule, the importance of civil institutions in an individualistic culture dominated by the pursuit of material self-interest, the influence of the press and the judiciary in American politics, and the vital role of religion in American life, while prophetically examining the widening differences between the northern and southern states

12 editions published between 1856 and 1888 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Washington by François Guizot( Book )

10 editions published in 1840 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Mieux encore que Charlemagne, Cromwell ou Napoléon, George Washington (1732-1799) a incarné le grand homme par excellence aux yeux du plus illustre historien français du premier XIXe siècle, François Guizot. Aussi ce dernier, qui fut également homme d'Etat, lui a-t-il consacré un essai biographique paru en 1840 avec un succès immédiat. Ce protrait, informé et attachant, du général en chef puis premier président des Etats-Unis durant deux mandats est l'occasion d'une réflexion toujours actuelle sur les fondements de la jeune république, sur l'esprit de liberté dont elle est issue, sur l'imprégnation religieuse de la société, aussi sur les causes du succès de la révolution américaine comparé au mauvais sort de la révolution française."
