Tyranny and Liberty: Big Government and the Individual in Tocqueville's Science of Politics




By Harvey C. Mansfield. Published 1999. ISBN 9780718716028



Detailed Description

Tocqueville’s analysis of the new kinds of governmental and social tyranny that threaten human liberty in the modern world is the main focus of this monograph. Professors Mansfield and Winthrop differ in their views to Professor Raynaud regarding the remedies Tocqueville prescribed for the problems in modern democracy, but they all agree on the importance of these questions and on the importance of consulting Tocqueville’s works in order to understand liberal democratic societies.
