A handy paperback edition offered primarily to teachers and students who can make no pretense of reading the entirety of the large work, but who want to sample some of its chief delights... [Grant gives us an] exemplary translation ... marked above all by great accuracy and fidelity to Tocqueville's text... Kessler's editor's Introduction is a model introduction to a classic text for today's students. It is clearly written, compact (without being too short or dense), and nicely structured... A tour--and translation--well worth the price of admission. --Paul Seaton, Perspectives on Political Science A fine piece of work. Kessler has presented one of the best summaries of Tocqueville's thought that I know of. The translation represents a clear improvement over both the Bradley translation and the Lawrence translation. In numerous cases, Grant has provided extremely useful notes covering the range of meanings and historical background of important concepts. Anyone teaching a course calling for selections from Tocqueville cannot do better than this volume. --Christopher Kelly, Boston College This is an excellent product--a major improvement over the other available versions. I will use it when I teach Tocqueville. --Donald T. Maletz, University of Oklahoma
