The End of History and the Last Man
Francis Fukuyama

Good evening, TAI podcast listeners! We have a real treat for you this week, as we invite noted political scientist, Stanford University senior fellow, and TAI Chairman Francis Fukuyama on the show.

In part 1 of the interview, Frank discusses how the neoconservative movement used—or maybe more accurately-put misused—the ideas put forward in his “The End of History?” essay, and looks back on what has changed—and what hasn’t—in the year’s since the essay’s 1989 publication.

You won’t want to miss this episode or next week’s, in which Richard turns the focus towards Frank’s new book, the second volume of The Origins of Political Order, due out this fall.

Be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. You can follow our host, Richard Aldous, on Twitter @RJAldous and Francis Fukuyama @FukuyamaFrancis.

    25 Years After Tiananmen Square, Liberal Democracy Still Stands – Francis Fukuyama. See related essay in Wall Street Journal (Jun. 6). Beyond that, interesting podcast interview, just not long enough(I await part II).
