Monthly series continues through May
DEARBORN – Classics Revisited will meet to discuss “Democracy in America” from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, in the Ford Collection Room of Henry Ford Centennial Library, 16301 Michigan Ave.
In the mid-1800s, a French political scientist named Alexis de Tocqueville came to the United States to appraise the meaning and functioning of democracy.
This book, written as a result of his visit, contains his comments and criticisms – many of which are still vital in today’s world.
