Why Nations Fail

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic During this presidential election year, both political parties will be suggesting that the election of other party candidates will bring the end of the United States as we know it. However, what does it take to bring an end to nationhood? We will read Why Nations Fail: the Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty (Crown, 2013) by Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson. The authors use history, economics, and political science to evaluate and build on the theses of others, such as Jared Diamond, Niall Ferguson, Francis Fukuyama, Charles Mann, and Ian Morris, to show us what it takes for a nation to fail. Using this book, we will explore how many nations have grown and changed through history. People who love politics and history should have a great time discussing our selection together.
