In 1831, Tocqueville set out from post-revolutionary France on a journey across America that would take him nine months and cover 7000 miles. The result was 'Democracy in America', a subtle and prescient analysis of the life and institutions of 19th-century America.

"No better study of a nation's institutions and culture than Tocqueville's Democracy in America has ever been written by a foreign observer; none perhaps as good."<br>--"The New York Times" <br>Praise for the work of Joseph Epstein: <br>"Epstein is one of the premier contemporary American essayists...What is so remarkable about Epstein as an essay writer is that he'll begin a discussion at some personal place...and end up in another place relevant to us all. He enjoys making language work, not making it jump through hoops for show." --"Booklist" <br>"Joseph Epstein is an essayist in the brilliant tradition of Charles Lamb. He moves so effortlessly from the amusingly personal to the broadly philosophical that it takes a moment before you realize how far out into the intellectual cosmos you've been taken."<br>--Tom Wolfe <br>"Joseph Epstein's essays no more need his identifying byline than Van Gogh's paintings need his signature. Epstein's style--call it learned whimsy--is unmistakable; for Epstein addicts, indispensable."<br>--George Will <br>"Joseph Epstein is the liveliest, most erudite and engaging essayist we have." --James Atlas <br>"If Epstein's ultimate ancestor is Montaigne, his more immediate master is Mencken. Like Mencken, he has fashioned a style that successfully combines elegance and even bookishness with street-smart colloquial directness. And there is nothing remote or aloof about him."<br>--John Gross, "Chicago Tribune"
