Democracy in America” is a seminal work by French political thinker Alexis de Tocqueville. After being sent to the U.S. to study its prison system, Tocqueville instead used the opportunity to conduct a wider analysis of American society.

His observations cover the principle of equality, its implementation in American life, and its broader implications for society. Tocqueville offers a nuanced examination, noting both the potential of democracy and the dangers it poses.
