In 1831 Tocqueville journeyed to the United States (...) to study the Americal penal system. He then wrote Democracy in America, the first volume of which appeared in 1835, the second in 1840. (...) Tocqueville was interested in the political, cultural, and to a lesser extent, economic consequences of 'democracy', by which he meant not representative government or political arrangements of any sort, but 'equality of conditions'. (...) Tocqueville's major intellectual, not to say political, preoccupation was discovering how 'liberty' might be preserved under democratic conditions." (New Palgrave IV, 656).
