Francis Fukuyama: “If you don’t have a sense of national identity, you can’t have a democracy”

Francis Fukuyama is one of the big names in political science worldwide. He is a professor at Stanford University, where he directs the Ford Dorsey Master’s in International Policy. Fukuyama’s call to fame came in 1992 with The End of History and the Last Man, a landmark essay that has often been misunderstood and for which he took a great deal of flak. In his book Fukuyama hailed the victory of liberal capitalism, a proclamation that has since been put into question by the rise of authoritarianism in the West. Since then he has written several other books, the latest of which, titled Identity, is a particularly interesting and well-documented essay about the role of identity politics across the world.
