Alexis de Tocqueville traveled to the United States to study the prison system in 1831 and came away with insightful thoughts and observations about the young country's social and political institutions. In volume one of this two-volume work, a standard text in political science curricula, de Tocqueville analyzes the good and ill effects of democracy on the creation of laws, the exercise of government, and affairs of state. In the second part of volume one, he considers how the tyranny of the majority renders the law unstable, intellectual life stagnant, and its power potentially arbitrary and dangerous.
