Democracy In America, vol 1

by Alexis de Tocqueville

The primary focus of Democracy in America is an analysis of why republican representative democracy has succeeded in the United States when it failed in so many other places. Tocqueville also speculates on the future of democracy in the United States, discussing both possible threats to democracy and possible dangers of democracy, including his belief that democracy has a tendency to degenerate into what he calls ''mild despotism.'' He also observed that the strong role religion played in the United States was due to its separation from the government, a separation all parties found agreeable. Translated by Henry Reeve
