Alexis de Tocqueville

$ 1.99

Alexis de Tocqueville was a French nineteenth century political philosopher and historian. His landmark work ‘Democracy in America’ (1840) analyses the improved living standards and social conditions of individuals as well as their relationship to the market and state in Western societies. The treatise won Tocqueville an immediate reputation as an esteemed political scientist. In later years, he turned to the subject of the French Revolution and, after years of research, he published ‘The Old Regime and the Revolution’, exploring French society before the French Revolution, the so-called “Ancien Régime”, while investigating the forces that led to the 1789 Revolution. The book is now generally considered one of the major early historical works on the subject, which expands on Tocqueville’s main theory about the Revolution — the theory of continuity. This eBook presents Tocqueville’s collected (almost complete) works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
