The time, of course, is represented by his pretty extreme neo-liberalism, though that is becoming less fashionable now than it was. In many ways Ferguson is a creature of his time, and of the place he has chosen for now to live. The final expansion in this period began during the reign of Ying Zheng, the king of Qin. In many ways it's an engaging book: uneven, yes, and ill-ordered, probably as a result of its derivation from the TV series, and of the ideological framework — the "six apps" — that Ferguson feels he needs to force his "facts" into.

According to Huntington, a torn country must meet three requirements to redefine its civilizational identity.
