Francis Fukuyama analyses whether the evolution of History, not in human or life form but of periodic political evolution has drawn to an end. He examines the coherent evolution of societies up to the technologically-aided period of liberal democracy. He focuses on determining whether the human race can move past this age of modern liberal democracy and concludes that liberal democracy fits the ideal conception of human political nature beyond which the human race cannot further evolve. This book critic delves into these aspects and examines the same two decades after the end of the cold war. Is the subject still relevant?
