Editorial Reviews

Review

"These essays offer a stimulating dialogue about the enduring relevance of Tocqueville's ideas to our present debates on the future of democracy across the globe. The diversity of viewpoints convincingly demonstrates that the greatness of Tocqueville lies in the critical and sophisticated lens through which he analyzed the multiple facets of modern democracy." - Aurelian Craiutu, Indiana University, Bloomington

"A richly varied and authoritative set of essays authored by an array of fine scholars. It takes Tocqueville scholarship into new and original areas of investigation, applying his ideas and insights to questions of central importance in our contemporary world. For the first time we see how Tocqueville's thinking can help us make sense of the emerging democratic and international order of the twenty-first century. And, as always, Tocqueville has much to teach us." - Jeremy Jennings, Queen Mary University of London

"Under the tutelage of two outstanding guides, a talented array of scholars offers astute, novel, and penetrating considerations of a global Tocqueville. Wide-ranging in space and time, this uncommonly thoughtful collection deepens our understanding of democracy - just as Tocqueville would have wished - both as a political regime and as an egalitarian social form." - Ira Katznelson, Columbia University

Book Description

Alexis de Tocqueville is renowned for his classic book, Democracy in America. Although Tocqueville is widely cited as an authority on democracy and American political culture, his thoughts on democratization outside the Western world are less known and understood. This collection of essays employs Tocqueville's writings as a jumping-off point to explore the challenges of democratization in the twenty-first century. This book shifts the focus of Tocqueville studies away from America and Western Europe, highlighting the international dimensions of his political thought.
