It is a wonderful analysis of contemporary challenges of modern democracy on the bedrock of theoretical and philosophical foundations. Written in the Fukuyama style which is lucid and interesting same as his other books that appeared in past. He has beautifully touched the current issues of confusion, contradictions and anger that is being observed in many parts of the world among youths in recent past. A valuable work.
This is a very good book from Fukuyama. His analysis of thymos, the need for human dignity, identity and today's politics around it provides a very good understanding of not just politics today in the United States and Europe but also a perspective on the Arab spring or French revolution. The author explains the actions of the left and right groups. His view of national identity, democracy are such which one can also relate in the Indian context.
