Tocqueville came to America to expose himself to something new, a representative democracy. The words he penned while he toured the world is both epic and everlasting. Many people overlook this author because they assume it will be heavy and outdated, but they would be wrong. Here is a person who saw something fabulous and terrifying in how we ran our country. Concepts such as the American Dream seemed to go against everything European scholars spoke up, yet it works. Take a chance and enjoy a little Tocqueville!!!

As a causual reader of Amerian history, I muddled through de Tocqueville. I have a problem in parsing out the writing style of early 19th century authors. The subject was interesting, and I'm glad I stuck with it, but it was an ordeal. Serious readers will have patience with this, and will get a lot out of it. Casual readers would be better off skipping it.

This is a must read for all those interested in immigration, emerging cultures and the development of a society. Very informative.

I got a whole bunch of free books to download. Haven't read it yet. Doesn't appear to be any issues with downloading.
