Tocqueville and Democracy in the Internet Age is a general introduction to Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) and his monumental two-volume study Democracy in America (1835, 1840) that pays particular attention to the critical conversation around Tocqueville and democracy since the end of the Cold War during the Internet Age; i.e., post-1989. The book is addressed broadly to students, specialists, and ordinary citizens who wonder if democracy is still possible today and under what conditions.
