Writings on empire and slavery by Alexis de Tocqueville( Book )
16 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 431 libraries worldwide
"Although Tocqueville never published a book-length study of French North Africa, his various writings on the subject provide as invaluable a portrait of French imperialism as Democracy in America does of the Early Republic period in American history. In Writings on Empire and Slavery, Jennifer Pitts has selected and translated nine of his most important dispatches on Algeria, which offer startling new insights into both Tocqueville's political thought and French liberalism's attitudes toward the political, military, and moral aspects of France's colonial expansion. Also included in this collection is Tocqueville's influential call for the abolition of slavery in the French West Indies, an action he felt would regain for France the moral high ground taken by Britain when it abolished slavery in its colonies - even as the conquest and settling of Algeria would unify the French nation and gain for it international respect."--Jacket
Memoir on pauperism by Alexis de Tocqueville( Book )
33 editions published between 1835 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 396 libraries worldwide
"The 'Memoir on Pauperism' was written in 1835 immediately after Alexis de Tocqueville had completed the first volume of Democracy in America. It was based on his visit to England in 1833, where he found that one-sixth of the population had been reduced to reliance on poor relief at a cost approaching nearly one-fifth of total national expenditure." "Today, 17% of the population are reliant on income support - a strikingly similar proportion to Tocqueville's 1833 estimate - and if the other means-tested benefits are included the figure is 27%. In her introduction, Gertrude Himmelfarb, one of the foremost historians of the nineteenth century, shows the relevance of Tocqueville's insights for the modern debate about welfare reform in both Britain and America." "Tocqueville began the 'Memoir' with the paradox that the most impoverished countries in Europe, like Spain and Portugal, had few paupers; while England, the wealthiest country at the time, had many. It had happened, he argued, as an unforeseen consequence of good intentions. As wealth had grown, those who prospered were not prepared to tolerate hardship in their midst. But, in truth, the paradoxical result of this early experiment in compulsory state welfare was that beneficiaries were degraded by their reduction to dependency." "In contrast, Tocqueville believed, voluntary charity at its best established a 'moral tie' between giver and receiver and, instead of encouraging dishonesty and 'working the system', it sought to strengthen character and restore independence. Today, Himmelfarb writes, we can more than ever appreciate Tocqueville's criticism of 'government charity' as an 'entitlement'."--BOOK JACKET

Tocqueville and the nature of democracy by Pierre Manent( Book )
1 edition published in 1982 in Undetermined and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"Nous croyons savoir ce qu'est la démocratie puisqu'elle est, depuis plus de deux siècles, notre régime politique. Or nous ne le savons pas, ou ne le savons qu'à moitié. Et cette demi-ignorance des amis de la démocratie n'est pas moins dangereuse que l'aveuglement de ses ennemis déclarés. La démocratie est bien le régime le plus propre à la nature humaine quand cell-ci est enfin libre d'exprimer ses vœux, mais c'est aussi quelque chose qui lui arrive, parfois contre son gré. Que voulons-nous lorsque nous voulons toujours plus de démocratie? Le savons-nous? Et si nous le savions, le voudrions-nous vraiment? La grandeur de Tocqueville fut d'être capable à la fois d'encourager la claire espérance et d'approfondir le secret douloureux de la démocratie. Ce que Tocqueville décrit, c'est la transformation de l'homme par la démocratie, c'est un nouveau type humain: l'homme démocratique. Celuici cherche à réaliser une hypothèse: tous les hommes naissent et demeurent libres et égaux en droits. Tocqueville analyse avec une extraordinaire pénétration comment la vie humaine dans tous ses aspects est bouuleversée par cette hypothèse. Aujourd'hui que la démocratie reste notre seul horizon politique, il est plus nécessaire que jamais d'en comprendre la nature. Et puisqu'elle transforme l'homme plus profondément qu'aucun autre régime, une enquête sur la démocratie est nécessaire à la conaissance de nous-mêmes. Qui sommes-nous, hommes démocratique? C'est le propos de ce livre de chercher réponse à cette question"--Publisher's description, back cover
