Recommended: Musings on Political Order

Most students of international relations can’t help but inordinately invoke Francis Fukuyama in almost everything they write, say or think; I’m as guilty as anybody else. Despite the fact that the “end of history” does not appear to be upon us after all, Fukuyama is as celebrated and as relevant as ever, and I’m looking forward to reading his new book, The Origins of Political Order, a chronicle of the human race’s attempts to build coherent and successful forms of government. And this is only Volume 1. The reviews have been stellar, especially this week’s in The New York Times Book Review.
