In 2004, Bernard-Henri Lévy, a French writer and philosopher, set out to retrace Alexis de Tocqueville’s 1831 visit to the United States for The Atlantic Monthly. Published by Random House in January 2006, “American Vertigo” includes Lévy’s interview-based portraits representing a full spectrum of American culture. Knox says, “Lévy has written a controversial book on America, which has puzzled some and offended others. The book poses some interesting French/American questions that I would like to discuss."


Knox, Edward C.
