Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Political theorist Francis Fukuyama's new book is a major accomplishment, likely to find its place among the works of seminal thinkers like Jean-Jacques Rousseau and John Locke, and modern moral philosophers and economists such as John Rawls and Amartya Sen . . .It is a perspective and a voice that can supply a thinker's tonic for our current political maladies."Earl Pike, The Cleveland Plain Dealer "An intellectual triumphbold in scope, sound in judgment, and rich in provocations; in short, a classic."Ian Morris, Slate "A sweeping survey that tries to explain why human beings act as they do in the political sphere. Magisterial in its learning and admirably immodest in its ambition."David Gress, The Wall Street Journal "In many respects, Fukuyama is an ideal guide for this enormous undertaking. He combines a deep expertise in political institutions with an impressive familiarity of world history, philosophy and social theory. An engaging writer, his prose crackles with sharp observations and illuminating comparisons, and the book marshals a breathtaking array of stimulating facts and provocative generalizations. Who knew, for instance, that the tsetse fly retarded the spread of Islam into sub-Saharan Africa? Simply as a compendium of fascinating minutiae and social science theory, the book offers a treasure trove to the casual student of political history. More important, Fukuyama''s book can help us appreciate why so many countries fail to combine the strong institutions, rule of law and accountability that are the hallmark of peaceful and prosperous nations." Eric Oliver, San Francisco Chronicle "Fukuyama's intellectual instincts hard-wire him into the most geopolitically strategicnot to mention dangerouscorners of the world.[He] is arguably the world's bestselling contemporary political scientist. His new book, The Origins of Political Order , which hits bookstores this week, seeks to understand how human beings transcended tribal affiliations and organized themselves into political societies. His books have taken on not only politics and philosophy, but also biotechnology and that tinderbox of an idea: human nature. 'He's incredibly intellectually honest,' says Walter Russell Mead, a historian of American foreign policy. 'He goes where his head takes him. His first duty is to the truth as he sees it.'" Andrew Bast, Newsweek "The history profession is today dominated by small minds studying small topics. Specialists trade in abstractions, taking refuge in tiny foxholes of arcane knowledge. It was not always this way. In the 19th century, men like Leopold von Ranke, George Macaulay Trevelyan and Frederick Jackson Turner used the past to try to understand the present. Their ideas were big, and sometimes too were their mistakes. Francis Fukuyama is at heart a Victorian. As he admits, he wants to revive a 'lost tradition' when historians were big thinkers. In The Origins of Political Order , his topic is the world, his starting point the chimpanzee. He charts how states evolved, in the process explaining why, despite humans' common origin in Africa perhaps 50,000 years ago, great political diversity exists today.[It is] impressive to see such a huge and complicated topic covered in such an accessible and engaging fashion. The Origins of Political Order tries to make sense of the complexity that has cluttered the last two decades. It is a bold book, probably too bold for the specialists who take refuge in tiny topics and fear big ideas. But Fukuyama deserves congratulation for thinking big and not worrying about making mistakes. This is a book that will be remembered, like those of Ranke, Trevelyan and Turner. Bring on volume II." Gerard DeGrott, The Washington Post " The Origins of Political Order "begins in prehumen times and concludes on the eve of the American and French Revolutions. Along the way, Fukuyama mines the fields of anthropology, archaeolo. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_0374227349

Buchbeschreibung Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2012. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Good. Francis Fukuyama, author of the bestselling The End of History and The Last Man provides a sweeping account of how today’s basic political institutions developed. The first of a major two-volume work, the book begins with politics among our primate ancestors and follows the story through the emergence of tribal societies, the growth of the first modern state in China, the beginning of the rule of law in India and the Middle East, and the development of political accountability in Europe up until the eve of the French Revolution. Drawing on a vast body of knowledge â€" history, evolutionary biology, archaeology, and economics â€" Fukuyama has produced a prodigious, provocative work that offers fresh insights into the origins of democratic societies and raises essential questions about the nature of politics and its discontents.
