Many books inform a reader, this book educates. As and exceptional book it will leave a mark on the way you understand the world you live in. Beyond being flat out interesting, it will provide you with a clearer sense of history, current geopolitics and political development. Thought provoking and well written but there is a drawback. You'll wish you had a friend read it at the same time becasue the ideas are too good to not want to discuss.

Original and interestingly developed theories posited by Mr. Fukuyama. Any fan of politics, as well as history, would find this book a valuable addition to your catalogue of political history. Read the book and decide for yourself if you accept, reject, or agnostically take the theories developed in this book as a step toward a newly defined political jurisprudence. Highly recommend this book and am agog for the second installment.

Fukuyama has gone to great lengths to explain under what circumstances democracy has developed and flourished. One cannot walk away from studying this book without an intimate knowledge of how the predominant present day nations came to be and why they interact the way they do. Better than any course on the subject I have ever taken.

A once in a lifetime thoughtful reconsideration of how we got to this point

Incredibly well written and so fun to read. Bonus points for recentering the story on China - the first to develop sophisticated political institutions. Extra bonus points for using usufructuary and wergeld. Can't wait for the sequel.
