American Journey: Travelling with Tocqueville in Search of America

By Richard Reeves

Simon & Schuster, 1982, 399 pp.

A talented writer retraces Tocqueville's famous travels through America in 1831, comparing the Frenchman's observations with his own today. He finds the problem of race a major and ominous continuity and the liberation of women the greatest change.
