Alexis de Tocqueville

Alexis de Tocqueville (1805 - 1859) was a French philosopher. His 'Democracy in America' is a classic of political philosophy. Hailed by John Stuart Mill and Horace Greely as the finest book ever written on the nature of democracy, it continues to be an influential text on both sides of the Atlantic, and above all in the emerging democracies of Eastern Europe.
