Alexis Charles Henri Clérel, comte de Tocqueville (French:[alɛgzi də tɔkvil]; 29 July 1805? 16 April 1859), colloquially known as Tocqueville (/ˈtɒkvɪl, ˈtk-/), was a French aristocrat, diplomat, political scientist, and historian. He is best known for his works Democracy in America (appearing in two volumes, 1835 and 1840) and The Old Regime and the Revolution (1856). In both, he analysed the improved living standards and social conditions of individuals as well as their relationship to the market and state in Western societies. Democracy in America was published after Tocqueville’s travels in the United States and is today considered an early work of sociology and political science.
