    The Intellectual Origins of Tocqueville's l'Ancien Régime Et la Révolution.Annelien de Dijn - 2008 - Modern Intellectual History 5 (1):1-25.
    This essay shows that the central core of Tocqueville's book, its condemnation of the centralist state of the Old Regime, can be placed in a specific tradition in French political thought—the legitimist critique of centralization. Long before the publication of L'Ancien Régime et la Révolution , the legitimists had made the problem of centralization into one of their central themes, and they had come to attribute all of France's ills to the centralist legacy. As this essay illustrates, the particular vocabulary (...)

    From the Enlightenment to the Terror: New Genealogies.Annelien de Dijn - 2013 - Modern Intellectual History 10 (1):153-162.
    Dan Edelstein is a prolific author. In less than two years he has produced not one but two books. His first, The Terror of Natural Right: Republicanism, the Cult of Nature, and the French Revolution , was published by The University of Chicago Press in October 2009. Its Irish twin, The Enlightenment: A Genealogy , appeared with the same press in the fall of 2010. Each of these books deals with a much-studied subject—respectively the Terror and the Enlightenment—the kind of (...)

  6. Bertrand de Jouvenel and the Revolt Against the State in Post-War America.Annelien de Dijn - 2010 - Ethical Perspectives 17 (3):371.
    This paper focuses on the reception of Bertrand de Jouvenel’s Du Pouvoir in post-war America. I show how Jouvenel drew on a firmly established tradition of ‘aristocratic liberalism’ in French political thought, which in turn allowed him to develop a pessimistic outlook on modern Western political culture as inherently conducive to totalitarianism. This profound pessimism allowed Du Pouvoir, which fell relatively flat in France itself, to become a critical success in the Anglophone world. Jouvenel’s jeremiad resonated in particular with Cold (...)

  7. Reading Tocqueville: From Oracle to Actor.Raf Geenens & Annelien de Dijn (eds.) - 2007 - Palgrave-Macmillan.
    The essays collected here aim to set up a dialogue between the 'historical' and the 'contemporary' Tocqueville. In what ways does a contextualization of Tocqueville throw new light on his relevance as a political thinker today? How can a focus on his embeddedness in the political culture of the nineteenth century contribute to our understanding of his political thought? Or, conversely, how has the usage of Tocqueville's writings in day-to-day political debate influenced the reception of his work both in the (...)
