In the past thirty years the United States has undergone a profound transformation in its social structure Crime has increased trust has declined families have broken down and individualism has triumphed over community Has the Great Disruption of recent decades rent the fabric of American society irreparably In this brilliant and sweeping work of social economic and moral analysis Francis Fukuyama shows that even as the old order has broken apart a new social order is already taking its place i The Great Disruption i forges a new model for understanding the Great Reconstruction that is under way, Fukuyama argues that the advent of Western liberal democracy may signal the end point of humanity s sociocultural evolution and the final form of human government What we may be witnessing is not just the end of the Cold War or the passing of a particular period of post war history but the end of history as such that is the end point of mankind s ideological evolution and the universalization of Western liberal democracy as the final form of human government Some see his thesis conflicting with Karl Marx s version of the end of prehistory Some scholars identify the German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel as the source of Fukuyama s language by way of Alexandre Koj ve Kojeve argued that the progress of history must lead toward the establishment of a universal and homogenous state most likely incorporating elements of liberal or social democracy but Kojeve s emphasis on the necessarily post political character of such a state and its citizens makes such comparisons inadequate and is irreducible to any mere triumph of capitalism, Virtually all human societies were once organized tribally yet over time most developed new political institutions which included a central state that could keep the peace and uniform laws that applied to all citizens Some went on to create governments that were accountable to their constituents We take these institutions for granted but they are absent or are unable to perform in many of today s developing countries with often disastrous consequences for the rest of the world br br Francis Fukuyama author of the bestselling i The End of History and the Last Man i and one of our most important political thinkers provides a sweeping account of how today s basic political institutions developed The first of a major two volume work i The Origins of Political Order i begins with politics among our primate ancestors and follows the story through the emergence of tribal societies the growth of the first modern state in China the beginning of the rule of law in India and the Middle East and the development of political accountability in Europe up until the eve of the French Revolution br br Drawing on a vast body of knowledge history evolutionary biology archaeology and economics Fukuyama has produced a brilliant provocative work that offers fresh insights on the origins of democratic societies and raises essential questions about the nature of politics and its discontents, b The second volume of the bestselling landmark work on the history of the modern state b br br Writing in i The Wall Street Journal i David Gress called Francis Fukuyama s i Origins of Political Order i magisterial in its learning and admirably immodest in its ambition In i The New York Times Book Review i Michael Lind described the book as a major achievement by one of the leading public intellectuals of our time And in i The Washington Post i Gerard DeGrott exclaimed this is a book that will be remembered Bring on volume two br Volume two is finally here completing the most important work of political thought in at least a generation Taking up the essential question of how societies develop strong impersonal and accountable political institutions Fukuyama follows the story from the French Revolution to the so called Arab Spring and the deep dysfunctions of contemporary American politics He examines the effects of corruption on governance and why some societies have been successful at rooting it out He explores the different legacies of colonialism in Latin America Africa and Asia and offers a clear eyed account of why some regions have thrived and developed more quickly than others And he boldly reckons with the future of democracy in the face of a rising global middle class and entrenched political paralysis in the West br A sweeping masterful account of the struggle to create a well functioning modern state i Political Order and Political Decay i is destined to be a classic
