下卷分以美国为背景发挥其政治哲学和政治社会学思想。

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.

The Americans live in a democratic state of society, which has naturally suggested to them certain laws and a certain political character. This same state of society has, moreover, engendered amongst them a multitude of feelings and opinions which were unknown amongst the elder aristocratic communities of Europe: it has destroyed or modified all the relations which before existed, and established others of a novel kind. The aspect of civil society has been no less affected by these changes than that of the political world. The former subject has been treated of in the work on the Democracy of America, which I published five years ago; to examine the latter is the object of the present book; but these two parts complete each other, and form one and the same work.
