American Vertigo: Traveling America in the Footsteps of Tocqueville

Bernard-Henri Levy discusses his new book and his travels in America at the Baker Institute.ᅡᅠ Levy is one of France's leading writers, a philosopher, journalist and activist. For the past year he has been traveling in the tracks of another Frenchman, Alexis de Tocqueville, who in 1831 wrote "Democracy in America," which remains one of the most influential books about America. The result is "American Vertigo," a fascinating new look at a country we sometimes only think we know.
