Influential political scientist Francis Fukuyama explores the development of the modern political landscape, arguing that unmistakable signs of decay are now emerging.
Francis Fukuyama, professor of political science at Stanford University, tells the story of mankind’s emergence as a political animal, and the development of state, law and democracy, in the wake of the cataclysms of the French and American revolutions.
Turning to the modern political landscape - with its uneasy tension between dictatorships and liberal democracies – Fukuyama argues that in the US, and in other developed democracies, unmistakable signs of decay have now emerged.
Speaker: Francis Fukuyama, senior fellow, Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, Stanford University.
