Tocqueville and the French by Françoise Mélonio( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in French and English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With his lifelong examination of the relation between freedom and equality in modern societies, Alexis de Tocqueville is the most widely shared icon of Franco-American political culture. But to cite Tocqueville is not necessarily to understand him. Until now, his American readers have not been in a position to recognize the extent to which, even when his ostensible subject was America, Tocqueville was engaging in hotly contested debates about French society and politics. Francoise Melonio's Tocqueville and the French allows for a clearer understanding of Tocqueville's writings by supplying their missing French context, from the time he wrote Democracy in America and The Old Regime and the French Revolution to the present. With its contextualization and interpretation of his works - and a new foreword by Seymour Drescher for American audiences - Tocqueville and the French will compel the attention of historians, sociologists, political scientists, and concerned citizens for whom Tocqueville remains perhaps the single most important interpreter of American society and culture

Comment, dans le passé, ceux qui habitaient les limites de la France actuelle se représentaient-ils le monde, un monde figuré ou sublimé par la littérature et les arts, un monde codifié par le droit, les valeurs? L'histoire culturelle, qui s'est récemment constituée comme discipline historique, s'est donné pour tâche de répondre à ces questions

Lettres choisies, souvenirs : 1814-1859 by Charles Alexis Henri Clérel de Tocqueville( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in French and Undetermined and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans ce choix des lettres (1814-1859) de Tocqueville, on trouve le recueil de ses expériences aussi bien publiques qu'intimes. Pour Tocqueville, qui était très conscient de l'importance littéraire de ses lettres, une lettre, c'est un essai. À la manière de Montaigne, mais rédigé à bâtons rompus, avec des lacunes et des redites qui donnent au volume le charme d'un miroir brisé. Avec chaque correspondant, Tocqueville met à l'épreuve ses idées et son style sans esprit de système. Il se montre ici toujours en apprentissage dans la simplicité de sa nature. On le suit durant cinquante ans, depuis les tracés hésitants de l'enfant jusqu'à l'ultime adieu du mourant ; tantôt solitaire dans les forêts américaines, tantôt ministre assis à la table des puissants, ou notable normand soucieux de fourrage et de haies. Paradoxe: ce miroir brisé fait admirablement ressortir la cohérence entre l'oeuvre et la vie
