review ↠ L'ancien régime et la Révolution 109 This new translation of an undisputed classic aims to be both accurate and readable Tocueville's subtlety of style and profundity of thought offer a challenge to readers as well as to translators As both. L Ancien R gime et la R volutionAlexis de Tocueville 1805 1859The Old Regime published in 1856 is a study of the Governance of France from the dark Middle ages up to Louis XVIAnd further to understand and explain why and how the terrible and violent Revolution of 1789 came to happenAlexis de Tocueville is best known for his Democracy in America 1835 a book that I appreciated and that should be read by every European and American who wants to understand the differences in understanding democracy in Europe at the time and AmericaIn his study of the Old Regime in order to produce a credible backup Tocueville undertook a comprehensive reading over several years of ancient documents available throughout France concerning the functioning of administration at all levels from basic villages to small towns and provincial cities and finally of ParisFrom St Louis 1226 1270 to Louis XVI oppression serfdom and heavy taxation of the peasants were the usual practice ever since centuriesAristocrats however historically providing armed protection for the king and governing and administrating their provinces were taking care of their farming and village communities They were exempt from any taxationThings changed when governance was concentrated as from Louis XIV and onwards to Paris and administration justice and taxation organised by the king s councilSocial classes were strictly separated into aristocrats bourgeois and illiterate peasants There was no communication between these classes rather enmityThis situation of course facilitated despotic and tyrannic rulingBy the time of Louis XVI the aristocratic cast had lost all their political and administrative power and had no longer any contact with their rural communities They had left their castles selling their land little by little and moved to Paris and became courtesansThey had kept their immunity from taxation and held on to and even increased all their privileges This situation was the first and most incomprehensible for the lower population This is where hatred between social classes had started and kept burning for generationsPhilosophers and writers of a new kind appeared and published political brochures proposing new governing systems to replace the old constitution thus preparing the readers for possible emerging changes in the countryTocueville never mentioned the name of Chateaubriand like he rarely mentioned any other name but it seems likely that he pointed at him when he mentioned this as one of the causes of the coming revolutionThe Church is another stepping stone that seemed to have led to unrestExempt from taxes implicated in all local politics and administrations rich land and farm owners providers of local judicial decisionsIt was not against the Christian Religion the revolution attacked and destroyed churches andMonasteries but because the church occupied the strongest most privileged position in the old regimeTocueville wants to show in this work that the revolution was necessary even taking into account the excessive violence according to his conclusion it was the only way to shake off the tyranny of the despotic ruling of the monarchyTocueville wrote this work at the time of a new despot ruling France Napoleon BonaparteHe never mentioned his name He was serving as a minister in Bonaparte s governmentThe book ends with the sad conclusion that the revolution had only led to the government of another despot and that the French population was not worthy of libertyI had chosen to read this work after having read Memoires d Outre Tombe by Chateaubriand in order to get a complete picture of this important period of French HistoryI would only recommend it to readers very interested in the period of the French Revolution not for its literary uality

review ↠ L'ancien régime et la Révolution 109 A Tocueville scholar and an award winning translator Arthur Goldhammer is uniuely ualified for the task In his Introduction Jon Elster draws on his recent work to lay out the structure of Tocueville' argu. Certainly one of the very greatest works of political philosophy in some ways better than Democracy in America Tocueville was fascinated by the phenomenon of social euality after centuries of feudalism and he goes so far as to say that the outward political revolutions and charters of the new post Enlightenment order were already essentially complete as social conditions before these revolutions ever took place The preparation for the French Revolution was simply that men notice men were nearly alike then they had ever been before Hence they simply outgrew their feudal institutions or already had outgrown them and that this process was complete under the ancien regime not under the revolutionary government The political revolts and events historians associte with the revolution are simply not that important because the event was overdetermined If it had not happened this way it would have happened some other way hence any given way though sufficient is hardly necessary to the political philosopher It s a daring thesis It may even be true It may even continue to be true and predictive as Democracy in America was and is The people are the same the arbitrary political and economic differences and privileges appear and the easy they are to strike down with a coup de main to the system from wherever uarter or circumstance that blow may come Tocueville expresses the view that essentially the political stage of the revolution was an act of piue by the new eual man a proto middle class man against such arbitrary privilege of the aristocracy long since degenerated into inbred fops The American revolution Simply the piue of the colonists who already considered themselves Englishmen and were shocked to find out they were not Rejection always precedes anger and revenge What can we learn today from this important and oh so delightfully dangerous wicked book And there are so few truly dangerous books Perhaps our own aristocracy of merit our meritocracy without merit in other words is finally ready to fall The one crucial lynchpin is do people see those possessors of letters behind their names and privileged positions in the institutional structure as truly deserving the ongoing mystiue and fascination that sustained the old feudal aristocracy for centuries or will that meritocracy be revealed as profoundly regressive and unfair or worse will the meritocrats simply be unmasked as no smarter or better than anyone else Tocueville suggests that just such a failure of legitimacy inevitably follows the realization of a profoundly eual social condition suddenly unmasked in this way If only there were some way to do this convincingly for all to see the political and economic reforms and all the rest would be easy to accomplish Really exciting stuff to be recommended to all young revolutionaries
