About Author

  1. Yoshihiro Francis Fukuyama born 27 October 1952 is an American philosopher, political economist, and author.Francis Fukuyama was born in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago His father, Yoshio Fukuyama, a second generation Japanese American, was trained as a minister in the Congregational Church and received a doctorate in sociology from the University of Chicago His mother, Toshiko Kawata Fukuyama, was born in Kyoto, Japan, and was the daughter of Shiro Kawata, founder of the Economics Department of Kyoto University and first president of Osaka Municipal University in Osaka Fukuyama s childhood years were spent in New York City In 1967 his family moved to State College, Pennsylvania, where he attended high school.Fukuyama received his Bachelor of Arts degree in classics from Cornell University, where he studied political philosophy under Allan Bloom He earned his Ph.D in government from Harvard University, studying with Samuel P Huntington and Harvey C Mansfield, among others Fukuyama has been affiliated with the Telluride Association since his undergraduate years at Cornell, an educational enterprise that was home to other significant leaders and intellectuals, including Steven Weinberg and Paul Wolfowitz.Fukuyama is currently the Bernard L Schwartz Professor of International Political Economy and Director of the International Development Program at the Paul H Nitze School of Advanced International Studies of Johns Hopkins University, located in Washington, DC.Fukuyama is best known as the author of The End of History and the Last Man, in which he argued that the progression of human history as a struggle between ideologies is largely at an end, with the world settling on liberal democracy after the end of the Cold War and the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 Fukuyama predicted the eventual global triumph of political and economic liberalism.What we may be witnessing is not just the end of the Cold War, or the passing of a particular period of post war history, but the end of history as such That is, the end point of mankind s ideological evolution and the universalization of Western liberal democracy as the final form of human government.He has written a number of other books, among them Trust The Social Virtues and the Creation of Prosperity and Our Posthuman Future Consequences of the Biotechnology Revolution In the latter, he qualified his original end of history thesis, arguing that since biotechnology increasingly allows humans to control their own evolution, it may allow humans to alter human nature, thereby putting liberal democracy at risk One possible outcome could be that an altered human nature could end in radical inequality He is a fierce enemy of transhumanism, an intellectual movement asserting that posthumanity is a highly desirable goal.The current revolution in biological sciences leads him to theorize that in an environment where science and technology are by no means at an end, but rather opening new horizons, history itself cannot therefore be said to be, as he once thought, at an end.In another work The Great Disruption Human Nature and the Reconstruction of Social Order, he explores the origins of social norms, and analyses the current disruptions in the fabric of our moral traditions, which he considers as arising from a shift from the manufacturing to the information age This shift is, he thinks, normal and will prove self correcting, given the intrinsic human need for social norms and rules.

One thought on “State-Building: Governance and World Order in the 21st Century



  1. Francis Fukuyama, in an important slender volume, sees nation building as the process of helping to eate self sustaining democratic political institutions and robust market oriented economies He draws a critical distinction between nation building and state building The former refers to eating or repairing all the cultural, social, and historical ties that bind people together as a nation The latter, in contrast, aims at eating or strengthening such government institutions as armies, police forc [...]


  2. I consider this book as a gift to the rulers, particular those who are leading developing countries, as a Libyan young man Im seeing tragically how domestic leaders are destroying everything without any sense of responsibility, despite we no longer believe on their intention to make our lives better This book is a perfect guidance and illustrates some previous experiences for instance, Japanese experience after 19945, and other Eastern Asian countries I sent this book to a friend who works in ou [...]



  3. The first issue that I should address comes from the fact that that I have posted this book review on my Steve s View from Abroad website What has this to do with India While a far cry from the failed states that are the primary focus of this book, India, nevertheless, is a state or states, as it s a federal system that fails to function effectively in many realms Anytime I speak about India, I almost always mention the lack of basic government services and the effect that this has daily life Po [...]


  4. Actually I expected especially that I keep hearing a lot about Fukuyama however I found this book to be average in quality Not much new stuff from what I learned in political science and public administration classes The exception is chapter 3, which offered excellent perspectives to the issue of weak states, interventions and international legitimacy and a differentiation to the US EU approaches.


  5. IMA TELL YOU WHAT I THOUGHT ABOUT THIS BOOK.Soo Not as controversial as I expected If all neo cons were Fukuyama grade instead of Boot or Bush grade, I d be a bit happier.First thing I noticed was that a lot of false dichotomies were drawn since he doesn t at all recognize the possibility that non state institutions can handle things like law, security, or arbitration His emphasis on strong institutions is warranted, but his assumption that states are the only logical providers of certain instit [...]


  6. I read the version of Profile Books which first published in 2004 in the United States.State building is a very popular notion in the 21st century in political science and public administration field Many people believe the collapse of Soviet Union is the mark of the end of ideology conflict and the milestone of the victory of liberal democracy However after the end of the cold war, many new states, former socialist states, least developed states, emerging market states, even developed states, i [...]


  7. Not bad I like the charts that he uses in the early chapters to describe the ideas that he has of various stages of development I also think he has numerous cogent point that point towards what is really important vs what isn t I like that he isn t so biased towards democracy that he fails to understand the underlying power structures that support such an institution I am not 100% certain that he should have veered off course He starts to try to do a comparative, I think a little too soon before [...]



  8. The book is not bad at all, particularly to bring such a brief explanation on how to shape the art of state building, how can a state be failed or having a wrong turn to be weaken Fukuyama underlines that weak states have posed threats to international order because they are the source of conflict and grave abuses of human rights In the end of the book he strongly supports to turn back to sovereign nation state by trying to understand how to make it solid and effective Yet, bring back the securi [...]


  9. I came into State Building expecting to vehemently disagree with the self styled neoconservative Fukuyama It is true that I can t support him on every point of this essay, but nevertheless, he offers a useful, accessible insight into the process of the creation of state institutions in so called failed states , or at least those without the institutional capacity of Western liberal democracies In particular, the second section, which examines the peculiar application of the principal agent probl [...]


  10. The work as a whole is a decent summary of the current mainstream of moderate liberal internationalist thought It is effective as a review of the salient points of what these positions have to offer in regards to state building However it does not add anything particularly new, so unless one wants to tread over the basics there is not much point to reading it A note must be made on the overreaching theme This book was very topical upon publication, but the strong focus that it brings on the Afgh [...]


  11. Randomly picked up this gem from Dad s shelf It s very intro ey on its titular topic but got me intrigued on the historical and political aspect of state building which is to say it presented the many failed attempts at interventions, mostly by the US It feels a bit bashy against economists, which means this is the second book of the year I read that spends a lot of its pages on that.Favorite quote.inventing a wheel that had been first rolled out over fifty years previously.Such is the nature of [...]


  12. Um pa s com um Estado fraco, incapaz de garantir a coes o social e o cumprimento das leis um perigo para os seus cidad os e uma amea a para a comunidade internacional.Inebriados pela vit ria na guerra fria os Estados Unidos lan aram se na senda de, atrav s de institui es financeiras internacionais como o FMI e o Banco Mundial, obrigar os diversos pa ses a reduzir o Estado Ver coment rio completo emlivros2009 2016 0


  13. It is the book that gives us a deep understanding on how governance should be the most important idea to be placed in the centrality of day by day business for all governmental agencies bodies The degree of governmentability will be determined not only by the quality of exercising power and authorities but also on how accountability, just and humane, responsibility, warm, trustworthiness, and empathy.


  14. I read this for a graduate international policy course Written by Frank Fukuyama, professor at Johns Hopkins School of International Studies, it describes weakened and failed states, and why the world should care about them Human rights abuses, massive immigration and harboring of international terrorists are just some of the issues examined.


  15. The quantitative analysis,somehow, cannot provide the depth of the problem Fukuyama tried to generalize the kind of state and the status of the state and how to cope with the challenges in 21st century Quite good, but,for me,it s rather plain.


  16. For people who like this stuff, pretty fair, I thought Insight into what degree various factors play in the role of maintenance and establishment of states throughout the 20th century and how those models can be applied to weak, failing, or non existent states.


  17. a breath of fresh air advocates a complex and holistic approach to governance and organizational science, rather than the often misguided reductionist method why do i feel as if im qualified to review a book


  18. An interesting account of the challenges posed to the international comunity regarding failed and weak states.


  19. Very informativeA well written concise explanation of international politics post 9 11 The chapters flow well and of course it is well researched and argued




  20. While the central idea surrounds the advocacy of state building, the book still seems like it doesn t have enough linkages and there is little conclusion that can be derived out of it.



  21. Fukuyama fills in the gaps left by Huntington He sees nation building as a process of building institutions to aid in the development of countries.
