Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-59) came to America in 1831 to see what a great republic was like. This masterpiece deserves its reputation: the best book on America and the best book on democracy. What struck him most was the country's equality of conditions, its democracy. The book he wrote on his return to France, Democracy in America, is both the best ever written on democracy and the best ever written on America.

As none is different from his fellows, none can exercise a tyrannical power: men will be perfectly free, because they will all be entirely equal. As none is different from his fellows, none can exercise a tyrannical power: men will be perfectly free, because they will all be entirely equal; and they will all be perfectly equal, because they will be entirely free. To this ideal state democratic nations tend. Such is the completest form that equality can assume upon earth; but there are a thousand others which, without being equally perfect, are not less cherished by those nations.
