The End of History and the Last Man Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ever since its first publication in 1992, The End of History and the Last Man has provoked controversy and debate. Francis Fukuyama's prescient analysis of religious fundamentalism, politics, scientific progress, ethical codes, and war is as essential for a world fighting fundamentalist terrorists as it was for the end of the Cold War. Now updated with a new afterword, The End of History and the Last Man is a modern classic.

Review:

"Awsome....A landmark work....Profoundly realistic and important....Supremely timely and cogent....The first book to fully fathom the depth and range of the changes now sweeping through the world." George Gilder, Washington Post Book World

Review:

"Clearly written....Immensely ambitious....A tightly argued work of political philosophy....Fukuyama deserves to have his argument taken seriously." William H. McNeill, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Provocative and elegant....complex and interesting....Fukuyama is to be applauded for posing important questions in serious and stimulating ways." Ronald Steel, USA Today

Review:

"The End of History held Me Rapt....Fukuyama reasons elegantly....He presents his case strongly and with assurance." Richard Lourie, Boston Globe

Review:

"Extraordinary....Controversial....A Superb book. Whether or not one accepts his thesis, he has injected serious political philosophy into the discussion of political affairs and thereby significantly enriched it." Mackubin Thomas Owens, Washington Times

Review:

"Bold, lucid, scandalously brilliant. Until now, the triumph of the West was merely a fact. Fukuyama has given it a deep and highly original meaning." Charles Krauthammer

Review:

"At once exhilarating and sobering....His subject is the place of America, and the American idea, in the stream of history." George F. Will

Review:

"In a broad, ambitious work of political philosophy...Fukuyama asserts that history is directional and that its endpoint is capitalist liberal democracy." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"An important work that affords significant returns on the investments of time and attention required to get the most from its elegantly structured theme." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"History disappears very early on in the narrative, to be replaced by abstract philosophy. This essay made into a book is pretentious and overblown, though it offers some grounds for speculation." Library Journal

Synopsis:

Fukuyama's profound inquiry leads the reader to the question of whether humanity will eventually reach a stable state in which it is at last completely satisfied, or whether there is something about the condition of humans that will always lead them to smash this ultimate equilibrium and plunge the world back into chaos.
