Democracy in America, Paperback Book


This new abridged translation of Democracy in America reflects the rich Tocqueville scholarship of the past forty years, and restores chapters central to Tocqueville's analysis absent from previous abridgmentsincluding his discussions of enlightened self-interest and the public's influence on ethical standards.
