Bibliographical information on
Francis Fukuyama

The following list is a reworked version of Fukuyama's info pages at, at SAIS, The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University, Washington D.C. There, you will also find his biography.
Another overview of publications is here:

Francis Fukuyama was born 27 October 1952 in Chicago, Illinois.

The purpose of this page is to provide an overview of links to books, articles, op-eds etc. to publications by Francis Fukuyama. It is interesting to see developping Fukuyama's ideas in the chronology of his publications.
I also selected some recent critics and commentaries, but that is of course only a very small amount from what is around on the internet.
