Alexis De Tocqueville – Democracy in America

One good book often leads to another good book. The great book for Chinese emperor Zizhi Tongjian(English translation name“Mirror to Aid Emperor”) leads me to discover another great book, Alexis De Tocqueville – Democracy in America.


It is recommended by one of my colleagues, as an answer to my question: “What is the book that lays a foundation to the United States as Zizhing Tongjian to China?”

Watched a 7min youtube about Tocqueville.

Borrowed his book from NYPL, starting to read this bit by bit from today.
