Alexis de Tocqueville: Democracy in America, Today

Almost 200 years ago, a young Frenchman named Alexis de Tocqueville came to the United States on a trip and ended up writing a book -- Democracy in America -- that is still regarded as one of the smartest books (if not THE smartest book) ever written about American politics and culture. What can we learn from Tocqueville about American democracy today? How can he help us understand not just the strengths but the weaknesses of our democratic system? And how can he help us understand how to be the best democratic citizens we can be?

Susan will be discussing the Introduction and two sections of de Tocqueville's book. We know this is a long reading! If you can skim it beforehand, it will enhance the discussion.
