While doing his work in America with his colleague Gustavo de Beaumont studying the American prison system by a 9-month journey through eastern America Tocqueville became very interested in American society and the political system as a whole. For he saw it as a good example of what post-revolutionary France could be like. As a result he veered off course and used his work in America as an excuse to study American society and politics. With this research he wrote his most famous writings including the book that we are discussing “Democracy in America.” In this book he tries to explain what he understood The United States was back in the 1800s, what democracy was to the country and how this could compare to post-revolutionary France. While in my opinion Tocqueville does support democracy he also finds some issues that he brings up about it.
