Lecture Summary
Like any book, we should read Alexis de Tocqueville’s Democracy in America with its historical context in mind. Tocqueville wrote his work as an outside observer, not as an American. He wrote as a critical bystander, not as an admirer. And he wrote as one who saw first hand the effects of revolution on his family and his country. Let’s explore some ways to learn from Tocqueville’s remarkable work.

Pricing (Includes box lunch and beverage)
