Title: The Origins of Political Order: From Prehuman Times to the French Revolution

Author: Francis Fukuyama

ISBN: 9781846682575

Language: English

Series: Political Order #1

Virtually all human societies were once organised tribally, yet over time most developed new political institutions which included a central state that could keep the peace, and uniform laws that applied to all citizens. We take these institutions for granted, but they are absent or are unable to perform in many of today's developing countries — with often disastrous consequences for the rest of the world. 

In The Origins of Political Order, Francis Fukuyama provides a sweeping account of how today's basic political institutions developed. He 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 a 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. 

Spanning history, evolutionary biology, archaeology, and economics, Fukuyama offers fresh insights on the origins of democratic societies. 

'It should be read by every democrat -and every dictator' Dominic Lawson Sunday Times 

'Books on political theory are not often page-turners; this one is' Economist 

'An astonishing achievement ... the canvas is vast, and the ambition prodigious' David Marquand New Statesman 

Francis Fukuyama, author of the bestselling The End of History and the Last Man and one of our most important political thinkers, provides a sweeping account of how today’s basic political institutions developed. The first of a major two-volume work, The Origins of Political Order 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.
