Paperback edition of Fukuyama's study on the emergence of mankind as a political animal. The first in a series, with the next volume due to be published next year. Sold more than 10,000 copies in hardback. 'It should be read by every democrat, and every dictator.' Dominic Lawson, "Sunday Times"
Elegant, honest, persuasive ... he attacks his former academic allies and friends ... with a relentless and awesome force
It should be read by every democrat - and every dictator.
Thoroughly worthwhile ... [the book] will give many thoughtful people a sensible path forward
This is that rare work of history with up-to-the-minute relevance
No longer the neocon of former days, Fukuyama seems a more flexible and discerning thinker, and as always, his mastery of the literature is daunting. This exceptional book should be in every library
Sweeping, provocative big-picture study of humankind's political impulses ... Endlessly interesting - reminiscent at turns of Oswald Spengler, Stanislaw Andreski and Samuel Huntington, though less pessimistic and much better written
Societies that learn from mistakes rather than punish them have an inherent resilience...It is confirmed by this ambitious work.
