Classics Revisited will meet to discuss Democracy in America 7-8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19 at the Henry Ford Centennial Library in the Ford Collection Room.
The library is located at 16301 Michigan Ave. in Dearborn.
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 extraordinary book, written as a result of his visit, contains his comments and criticisms—many of which are still vital in today's world—and is a must-read for anyone interested in American politics.
Check out or reserve a copy in person, by phone at 313-943-2330, or online at www.dearbornlibrary.org. Even if you don’t have time to read the book, those interested are encouraged to stop by the discussion anyway.
