When Tocqueville visited America in the 1830s he found a thriving democracy of a kind he had not seen anywhere else. Many of his insightful observations American society and political system, found in the two volume book he published after his visit, still remain surprisingly relevant today.

I'm unsure of this readers accent, it put me off at first, but the longer I listened the more I liked it. very soothing and interesting voice.

can't deal with chapter two. The reader whistles his "s" and pops his "p's." can't deal.

Democracy in America

(4 Sterne)

I've found that there in information in this that,as a U S Citizen, took for granted. I now will be able to wriye a book that is completely correct. It will be fiction and truth involved. This information will direct me in the proper direction in doing so. I feel that all american should be aware of all of these truths in order to experience their complete U S Citizenship.
