This new translation of an undisputed classic aims to be both
accurate and readable. Tocqueville's subtlety of style and
profundity of thought offer a challenge to readers as well as to
translators. As both a Tocqueville scholar and an award-winning
translator, Arthur Goldhammer is uniquely qualified for the task.
In his Introduction, Jon Elster draws on his recent work to lay out
the structure of Tocqueville's argument. Readers will appreciate
The Ancien Regime and the French Revolution for its sense of irony
as well as tragedy, for its deep insights into political
psychology, and for its impassioned defense of liberty."
