Overview

Chasing the Red, White, and Blue: A Journey in Tocqueville's Footsteps Through Contemporary America by David Cohen

Using Democracy in America as his model, acclaimed British and South African journalist David Cohen retraces Alexis de Tocqueville's journey around the country to observe how the balance between the rich and the poor has changed over the past 150 years. Traveling from New York to the Ohio River Valley, the deep South, California, and finally to Washington, D.C., Cohen captures an America where inequality is balanced by unquenchable hope.
