A New Book On Alexis de Tocqueville's Thought

Scholars Zbigniew Rau and Marek Tracz-Tryniecki of the University of Lodz have co-edited a new book on my favorite nineteenth century political philosopher, Alexis de Tocqueville.

Tocquevillian Ideas: Contemporary European Perspectives (University Press of America, 2014) includes Zbigniew Rau and Marek Tracz-Tryniecki, Tocqueville and Europe: What Can We Learn From Him About the Past, the Present and the Future of the Old Continent?,Cengiz Çağla, Tocqueville: A Thinker of Freedom, Ewa Atanassow, Patriotism in Democracy: What We Learn From Tocqueville, Marinus R. R. Ossewaarde, Tocqueville on Citizen Participation, Attila K. Molnár, Tocqueville and the Democratic Churning, Oliver Hidalgo, Religion, Virtue, and the Ennobling of Democracy: Tocqueville's Vision of Civic Society, Marek Tracz-Tryniecki, Human Dignity Versus Goodness: Tocqueville's Dilemna, and William R. Stevenson, Jr., The American Melting Pot as Reductionist Kettle: Religious Liberty's Worrisome Condition.

Thoughtful coverage by well-known scholars of an important figure in European and U.S.philosophy and political science.
