Tocqueville, Democracy, and Religion

New Book: "Tocqueville, Democracy, and Religion: Checks and Balances for Democratic Souls" by Oxford University Press. From the blurb: More than a study of Tocqueville on religion in democratic society, this volume offers us a re-interpretation of Tocqueville as a moralist and a student of human nature in democratic society; a thinker whose new political science was in the service of a new moral science aimed at encouraging democratic people to attain greatness as human beings. Tocqueville, Democracy, and Religion gives us a new Tocqueville for the twenty-first century.
