'The study is ... the product of a mature and wide-ranging mind ...' History of Political Thought
Harvey Mitchell's new book is a wide-ranging meditation on fundamental tensions in America: between its egalitarian principle and its political system, between its political system and its economic development, between its ideological commitment to inclusiveness and its enduring boundaries of exclusion. America after Tocqueville moves from an incisive historical analysis of Tocqueville's America to a magisterial exploration of current debates on democracy's prospects. The relevance of Tocqueville's classic commentary has never been more comprehensively argued." Seymour Drescher, University of Pittsburgh
"Mitchell uses Tocqueville's writings to delve into questions about equality and diversity in American democracy , which the author sees as continually balancing these two values.... This work examines important issues. Recommended." Choice
