francis fukuyama's floating head next to the title

The End of the End of History: Politics in the 21st Century

by Alex Hochuli Author, George Hoare Author and Philip Cunliffe Author

This timely and incisive book revists Francis Fukuyama's proposition that liberal democracy is necessarily the final evolutionary phase of government. In the midst of rising authoritarianism across the West, the spread of an outraged anti-politics, and widespread contempt for elites who have run government and social systems into the ground, liberal democracy is already in crisis. The political class is determined to blame this crisis on populism, Putin, Facebook, the voters—anyone but themselves. Culled from conversations over the years on the popular Aufhebunga Bunga global politics podcast, The End of the End of History traces the fallout from the 2008 financial crisis and its ongoing impacts around the Western world, including Trump, Brexit, the Gilets Jaunes, and other signs that the neoliberal order is crumbling.
