The End of History and the Last Man by Francis Fukuyama
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Three years ago, Fukuyama began an explosive debate about the future of the world in the post-Cold War era with an article entitled "The End of History and the Last Man". Now he has expanded on his original themes to adress the fundamental and far-reaching themes of the approaching Millennium. This is nothing short of an historical and philosophical primer for the onslaught of the 21st century.
