The Old Regime and the Revolution is Alexis de Tocqueville´s great meditation on the origins and meanings of the French Revolution. One of the most profound and influential studies of this pivotal event, it remains a relevant and stimulating discussion of the problem of preserving individual and political freedom in the modern world. Alan Kahan´s translation provides a faithful, readable rendering of Tocqueville´s last masterpiece, and includes notes and variants which reveal Tocqueville´s sources and include excerpts from his drafts and revisions. The introduction by France´s most eminent scholars of Tocqueville and the French Revolution, Françoise Mélonio and the late François Furet, provides a brilliant analysis of the work.
