9781491584873: Political Order and Political Decay: From the Industrial Revolution to the Globalization of Democracy
Revue de presse :

The best account I have read of how we reached this point ... a wealth of insights worthy of the greatest writers about democracy -- David Runciman FT A basic rule of intellectual life is that celebrity destroys quality ... Francis Fukuyama is a glorious exception to this rule The Economist To his credit, Francis Fukuyama extracts no catchy global lessons from this story of political decay ... so often unjustly accused of cold-war triumphalism, [he] is giving us a wake-up call Irish Times Fukuyama writes about the degeneration of America's political system with the passion and frustration of a prophet straining to be heard over a cacophony of partisanship and ideological dogma. It is to be hoped that he will make himself heard: this excellent volume of comparative history and political science should be read by politicians and public alike -- Tim Bouverie The Spectator The ground covered is astonishing... Read these wonderful books so that you can never again say that we haven't been warned. And read them, too, for the way they make uncertainty seem not just tolerable but the only sane way to look at the world --Nick Fraser Observer

Présentation de l'éditeur :

In The Origins of Political Order, Francis Fukuyama took us from the dawn of mankind to the French and American Revolutions. Here, he picks up the thread again in the second instalment of his definitive account of mankind's emergence as a political animal. This is the story of how state, law and democracy developed after these cataclysmic events, how the modern landscape - with its uneasy tension between dictatorships and liberal democracies - evolved and how in the United States and in other developed democracies, unmistakable signs of decay have emerged. If we want to understand the political systems that dominate and order our lives, we must first address their origins - in our own recent past as well as in the earliest systems of human government. Fukuyama argues that the key to successful government can be reduced to three key elements: a strong state, the rule of law and institutions of democratic accountability. This magisterial account is required reading for anyone wishing to know more about mankind's greatest achievements.

Description du livre BRILLIANCE AUDIO, United States, 2014. CD-Audio. État : New. Unabridged. 170 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New. Writing in The Wall Street Journal, David Gress called Francis Fukuyama s Origins of Political Order magisterial in its learning and admirably immodest in its ambition. In The New York Times Book Review, Michael Lind described the book as a major achievement by one of the leading public intellectuals of our time. And in The Washington Post, Gerard DeGrott exclaimed this is a book that will be remembered. Bring on volume two. 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. A sweeping, masterful account of the struggle to create a well-functioning modern state, Political Order and Political Decay is destined to be a classic. N° de réf. du libraire BRI9781491584873
