"This volume presents the ideas of conservative French political theorist Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) within the context of his life and times. It recounts his biography and influences, then discusses the intricacies of his thought and ideas about democracy and freedom (and the tension between them) in America, France, and other countries; his ideas about poverty; responses to his work by contemporaries; and the impact of his contributions, including his works Democracy in America and The Old Regime and the Revolution." -Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.
