Alexis de Tocqueville : a life by Hugh Brogan( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexis de Tocqueville was one of the greatest political thinkers of all time. Born a French aristocrat, he lost nearly his entire family in the Reign of Terror, and spent most of his adult life struggling for liberty under the unsuccessful regimes of nineteenth-century France. He was a man of apparent contradictions: an aristocrat who believed in democracy, a conservative with liberal ideals, an agnostic with Christian faith in humanity. At age 25 he traveled to America and encountered democracy for the first time. This firsthand experience contributed to his incisive writing on liberty and democracy. His book The Ancien Régime launched the scholarly study of the French Revolution, and Democracy in America remains the best book ever written by a European about the United States. In the first full-length biography in English, historian Brogan puts the man and his ideas together for a fuller understanding of how his influential interpretations came into being.--From publisher description

American presidential families by Hugh Brogan( Book )

Kennedy by Hugh Brogan( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hugh Brogan's trenchant Profile is a study of the Kennedy Presidency, not a full-scale political biography (and still less an intimate personal portrait). In order to understand Kennedy's aims and achievements in the White House, however, it necessarily pays attention to Kennedy the man, and reviews his background and earlier career, and the influences upon him. Brogan concentrates on the major themes: Kennedy's successful candidacy for office; his foreign policy; his part in the civil rights revolution; his handling of economic affairs; his agenda as a reformer; and, of course, the significance of his murder. Hugh Brogan succeeds admirably in his object of presenting Kennedy as a credible statesman and human being, not as a figure of legend - nor, in the modern way, as a figure of legend to be debunked
