    Virtually all human societies were once organized tribally, yet over time most developed new political institutions which included a central state that could keep the peace and uniform laws that applied to all citizens. Some went on to create governments that were accountable to their constituents. We take these institutions for granted, but they are absent or are unable to perform in many of today’s developing countries—with often disastrous consequences for the rest of the world.

    If you could sum up The Origins of Political Order from Pre-human Times to the French Revolution in three words, what would they be?

    Very interesting book. It is pretty much what I expected it to be. The overall rating for my review is based on the way the author captures and explains in an informative way the history and story of politics.
    For me this helped solidify in my mind the historical elements of politics and why it is important to study history.
    Funny how many of the ills of society could probably be avoided today if more people (especially our political leaders) would study history for its pitfalls and greatness!!
