Dr. Paul Goddard


Fukuyama is best known for the international sensation caused when he published his essay “The End of History?” in 1989, which later led to his book, “The End of History and the Last Man” in 1992. The book was published by Free Press and has appeared in over twenty foreign editions. He ignited a global debate with his revolutionary thesis, that the Cold War marked an endpoint of mankind’s ideological evolution. He felt that the universalization of Western liberal democracy would be the final form of human government. He later published Trust: Social Virtues and Creation of Prosperity in 1995, which modified his earlier thesis to include that culture cannot be fully separated from economics. Fukuyama has immense global recognition for his theories on democracy, development and economics.

Francis Fukuyama is the Olivier Nomellini Senior Fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI), resident in FSI’s Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law. Dr. Fukuyama has written widely on questions concerning democratization and international political economy. Our Posthuman Future: Consequences of the Biotechnology Revolution was published in 2002. His recent books are America at the Crossroads:  Democracy, Power, and the Neoconservative Legacy, and Falling Behind:  Explaining the Development Gap between Latin America and the United StatesThe Origins of Political Order:  From Prehuman Times to the French Revolution was published in April 2011. Political Order and Political Decay: From the Industrial Revolution to the Present Day was published in 2014.
