Alexis de Tocqueville is one of the most renowned and debated figures in contemporary political and social theory. This clear new introduction to de Tocqueville's thought examines in detail his classic works and their major themes. Beginning with an analysis of de Tocqueville's philosophy against the historical background and intellectual context of his time, Welch traces the development of his philosophy on democracy, revolution, history, slavery, religion, and gender--including chapters on de Tocqueville's writings on France and the United States. This volume also explores de Tocqueville's historical legacy as well as his contemporary significance, illuminating the reasons why this displaced nineteenth century aristocrat has become one of the most popular figures in current political and social thought.
