1863 Democracy in America by Alexis de Tocqueville Political Philosophy 2v SET Alexis de Tocqueville (1805 – 1859) was a French political thinker and historian best known for his works Democracy in America (appearing in two volumes: 1835 and 1840) and The Old Regime and the Revolution (1856). In both of these, he analyzed the improved living standards and social conditions of individuals, as well as their relationship to the market and state in Western societies. Democracy in America was published after Tocqueville's travels in the United States, and is today considered an early work of sociology and political science. De la démocratie en Amérique is a classic French text by Alexis de Tocqueville. Its title translates as Of Democracy in America, but English translations are usually titled simply Democracy in America. In the book, Tocqueville examines the democratic revolution that he believed had been occurring over the past seven hundred years.
