This special eBook collection drawn from the archives of Foreign Affairs traces, in real time, the great intellectual debates that defined the twentieth century—and are molding the twenty-first.
Gideon Rose, Charles Kupchan, and Tom Ashbook discuss whether democracy and capitalism can live up to the challenges of this century.
Today’s troubles are real, but not ideological: they relate more to policies than to principles. The postwar order of mutually supporting liberal democracies with mixed economies solved the central challenge of modernity, reconciling democracy and capitalism. The task now is getting the system back into shape.
Gideon Rose and Francis Fukuyama take on "The Future of History" with Charlie Rose.
Stagnating wages and growing inequality will soon threaten the stability of contemporary liberal democracies and dethrone democratic ideology as it is now understood. What is needed is a new populist ideology that offers a realistic path to healthy middle-class societies and robust democracies.
