Ever since its first publication in 1992, The End of History and the Last Man has provoked controversy and debate. Francis Fukuyama's prescient analysis of religious fundamentalism, politics, scientific progress, ethical codes, and war is as essential for a world fighting fundamentalist terrorists as it was for the end of the Cold War. Now updated with a new afterword, The End of History and the Last Man is a modern classic.
Francis Fukuyama, geboren 1952 in Chicago, gehört zu den herausragenden geschichtsphilosophischen Denkern unserer Zeit. Sein Buch über das "Ende der Geschichte" fand weltweit breites Echo. Fukuyama lehrt Politische Ökonomie an der Johns Hopkins Universität in Baltimore.
"Extraordinary...Controversial...A superb book. Whether or not one accepts his thesis, he has injected serious political philosophy into the discussion of political affairs and thereby significantly enriched it." -- Mackubin Thomas Owens, The Washington Times
