From America’s call for a free press to its embrace of the capitalist system, Democracy in America–first published in 1835–enlightens, entertains, and endures as a brilliant study of our national government and character. For today’s readers, de Tocqueville’s concern about the effect of majority rule on the rights of individuals remains deeply meaningful. His profound insights into the great rewards and responsibilities of democractic government are important words every American needs to read, contemplate, and remember. This edition contains the complete texts of Volumes I and II. With notes and suggested reading list.
