Political philosopher Professor Mansfield talked about his translation of Alexis de Tocqueville’s Democracy in America, published by the University of Chicago Press. Professor Mansfield and Delba Winthrop translated, edited, and wrote an introduction for the new edition, the third translation since the original two-volume work was published in 1835 and 1840. Alexis de Tocqueville was a French aristocrat, who came to the United States in the 1830s primarily to study the prison systems, but who became fascinated with American life, politics, and morals. Mr. Tocqueville based his book on observations, reading, and discussions with American citizens. close
