PREMIER EVENT: FRANCIS FUKUYAMA
Premier Event: Francis Fukuyama
Tuesday, November 11, 7:30 p.m.Political order and political decay
Tickets are available at Kepler's and online at Brown Paper TicketsPolitical order and political decay
is the completion of the most important work of political thought in at least a generation. Compared to such seminal thinkers as Jean-Jacques Rosseau, John Locke, John Rawls, and Amartya Sen, Fukuyama boldly reckons with the future of democracy in the face of entrenched political paralysis in the West.
Fukuyama argues that economic growth produces middle classes that in turn demand accountable institutions, the kind that make democracies healthy. But powerful elites can end up controlling those very levers of democracy, leading to the political paralysis evident in some Western societies.

Broken into sections on "The State", "Foreign Institution", "Democracy", and "Political Decay", Fukuyama gives an account of how state, law, and democracy developed over the last two centuries; how they interacted with one another and with the other economic and social dimensions of development; and, finally, how they have shown signs of decay in the United States and in other developed democracies. Political order and political decay has been called the companion volume to Fukuyama's The Origins of Political Order. Fukuyama writes with intelligence, eloquence, and erudition, making for an enjoyable read and a painless study.
Francis Fukuyama is the Olivier Nomellini Senior Fellow at Stanford's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies. He was a researcher at the RAND Corporation and served as the deputy director for the State Department's policy planning staff.
