Question and answer
Who was Alexis de Tocqueville, and what was his Key roll in American History?
Alexis de Tocqueville was born in Paris on July 29, 1805. He was born into a noble family from Normandy, France shortly after the French Revolution. [ Most of his family had been executed during the “Reign of Terror” (Siedentop, 1994: 1)The theories of Alexis de Tocqueville have had a profound effect on the concepts of democracy, penology and crime and punishment. Tocqueville’s historical background deeply influenced his theories. His early experiences and travels to America were instrumental to the forming of his theories. Equality of conditions is a central theme throughout all of his
theories. He argued equality is essential to democracy and it is the lack of quality that leads to crime. Critics of Tocqueville cite this reliance on equality as his major weakness. Despite these criticisms, Tocqueville’s theories remain popular 150 years after his death. ]
