    The Founders designed a polity almost fated to become a world power. Tocqueville's sense of democracy as a force of history was accompanied by his conclusion that democracies are "decidedly inferior" in the conduct of ...
  • Hrdy, Sarah (Indiana University William T. Patten Foundation, 2013-04-02)
