The Origins of Political Order is a book by political economist Francis Fukuyama about what makes a state stable. It uses a comparative political history to develop a theory of the stability of a political ing to Fukuyama, a stable state needs to be modern and strong, to obey the rule of law governing the state and be accountable.

The absolute monarchy that had ruled France for centuries collapsed in three years. Reknowned historian Roger Chartier, one of the most brilliant and productive of the younger generation of French writers and scholars now at work refashioning the Annales tradition, attempts in this book to analyze the causes of the French revolution not simply by investigating its “cultural origins” but by pinpointing the conditions that “made is possible because conceivable.”Chartier.

It was subdivided into 20 sous (also sols), each of 12 word livre came from the Latin word libra, a Roman unit of weight, and the denier comes from the Roman system and the denier itself served as the model for many of Europe's currencies.   The Origins of Political Order tries to make sense of the complexity that has cluttered the last two decades. It is a bold book, probably too bold for the specialists who take refuge in tiny topics and fear big ideas. But Fukuyama deserves congratulation 4/4(24). First published in , this book rapidly established itself as the indispensable guide for those seeking to learn what broughgt about the French Revolution--as well as those wanting to track the many debates had by historians on this issue.   The Origins of Political Order is volume one of a two-volume work, and Fukuyama says the second book will take the argument up to the present (this .
