Alexis de Tocqueville

Read this excellent review (German, subscription required) of de Tocqueville's classic De la démocratie en Amérique. It convinced me to finally start reading it, so I ordered both volumes at once here. Since I have a policy of reading all texts in their original language if I can, I ordered it in French.

Which brings me to a complaint: Why is it that the French always have to be so reclusive?! Whenever I order something from amazon.de, I get 5% off and free delivery, and I get to create a partnernet link. None of that works with amazon.fr! Soyez donc un peu plus agréeables, mes amis français!
