Political Order and Political Decay by Francis Fukuyama

This book's full title is Political Order and Political Decay, From the Industrial Revolution to the Globalization of Democracy. This book is another very long and very fascinating book by Francis Fukuyama on political order. Francis Fukuyama is always quite weighty.

There is a very good review of this book by John Gray at Literary Reviews. There is a review by Nick Fraser in The Guardian. A lot of good reviews come from UK sources, but there is also a very good one at the Washington Post by Gerard De Groot.

This is a short video by Francis Fukuyama at the Economist. It is a speech by Francis Fukuyama at Chatham House. A Q & A session starts after around 25 minutes. This video is talks by both Francis Fukuyama and David Runciman. This video is a panel moderated by Isabel Hull with John Mearsheimer, Peter Katzenstein and Francis Fukuyama at Cornell University. This introduction is long to this video at some 16 minutes. However, talks by all three professors I found quite fascinating and well worth while.

Also, an index of the books I have reviewed are on my website at Books. Follow me on Twitter.
