Alexis de Tocqueville, Gustave de Beaumont, and the Challenge of Democracy

Monday, August 1, 2005 to Monday, October 31, 2005

By common consent, Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America, published in 1835, is the greatest work on the United States ever written by a foreign observer. To mark the bicentennial of Tocqueville's birth, the Beinecke Library will hold a two-day international conference devoted to the French author on the weekend of September 30/October 1. The Beinecke exhibition "Tocqueville and Beaumont and the Challenge of Democracy" will remain on display at the library through October 24.
