One of America’s most distinguished political thinkers takes the John Adams Institute stage to discuss his latest, far-ranging exploration of history and society. Francis Fukuyama’s new book is about how states form, but while it goes back into the distant past, its relevance is very up-to-date. How did ancient societies relinquish their tribal ties in favor of a strong central government? The West has long supported democracy as an organizing principle, and has pushed tribal societies to change. But how realistic is that?
