Social scientists; France; Biography.

Annotation

The book proposes a new interpretation of Alexis de Tocqueville that views him first and foremost as a social scientist rather than a political theorist. Consistently going beyond exegetical commentary, he argues that Tocqueville is eminently worth reading today for his substantive and methodological insights.
