ABOUT THE BOOK
A defence of liberalism by the renowned political philosopher.
Since its inception following the post-Reformation wars, liberalism has come under attack from conservatives and progressives alike, and today is dismissed by many as an 'obsolete doctrine'. In this brilliant and concise exposition, Francis Fukuyama sets out the cases for and against its classical premises: observing the rule of law, independence of judges, means over ends, and most of all, tolerance.
Pithy, to the point, and ever pertinent, this is political dissection at its very best.
