上卷讲述美国的政治制度,并对美国的民主进行社会学的分析。

In the book, Tocqueville examines the democratic revolution that he believed had been occurring over the previous seven hundred years.

《论美国的民主》是托克维尔的代表作之一,分上、下两卷。其基本思想在于承认贵族制度必然衰落和平等与民主的发展势不可挡,对民主思潮有着深远的影响。

Tocqueville begins his book by describing the change in social conditions taking place. He observed that over the previous seven hundred years the social and economic conditions of men had become more equal. The aristocracy, Tocqueville believed, was gradually disappearing as the modern world experienced the beneficial effects of equality. Tocqueville traced the development of equality to a number of factors, such as granting all men permission to enter the clergy, widespread economic opportunity resulting from the growth of trade and commerce, the royal sale of titles of nobility as a monarchical fundraising tool, and the abolition of primogeniture.

阿历克西·德·托克维尔,19世纪法国历史学家、政治家,政治社会学的奠基人。主要代表作有《论美国的民主》和《旧制度与大革命》。

Alexis Charles Henri Clérel(29 July 1805 – 16 April 1859) was a French diplomat, political scientist, and historian.

In the eleven years that separated the Declaration of the Independence of the United States from the completion of that act in the ordination of our written Constitution, the great minds of America were bent upon the study of the principles of government that were essential to the preservation of the liberties which had been won at great cost and with heroic labors and sacrifices. Their studies were conducted in view of the imperfections that experience had developed in the government of the Confederation, and they were, therefore, practical and thorough.
