On July 29, 1805, Alexis de Tocqueville was born. His most famous book, Democracy in America (1835, 1840), quickly became a classic of social and political research and analysis, and remains the most important early book about the United States of America. He is often referred to as a founder of sociology as well as a major figure in the development of classical liberalism.

    An excellent version of Democracy in America is available from The Liberty Fund in Indianapolis. It has the French version and the English version on pages facing each other. It includes a lot of footnotes and commentary too. In four volumes.Ptscdave
