About 170 years ago, a liberal French politician and writer named Alexis de Tocqueville spent two years in America, studying the young country's character and its institutions, drawing conclusions in his book Democracy in America that are still being read and studied today. Now, French philosopher and journalist Bernard-Henri L?vy spent a year, post-9/11, traveling throughout the U.S. to get an update on Tocqueville's observations. L?vy's book is called American Vertigo.
