Tocquville: A Biography
André Jardin


‘Unlike his soothsaying contemporaries Karl Marx, Auguste Comte and the rest, Tocqueville was content to deal in possibilities rather than dogmatic predictions and ‘scientific’ laws – which is one reason, as Mr Jardin’s excellent book makes clear, why he still speaks to us so directly.’

     John Gross, The New York Times


‘Andre Jardin has given us what will be regarded as the authoritative and indispensable account of Tocqueville’s background, life, and career … It is already recognized as a classic.’

     G.W. Pierson
