Current speculation about the end of the Cold War and its implications for the future of the West has revived an old debate about whether history has an "end" and what this "end of history" will look like. "On Tyranny", first published by The Free Press in 1956, considers the idea of "the end of history". This revised edition includes an extensive selection from the life-long correspondence between Leo Strauss and Alexandre Kojeve, the French Hegelian philosopher.
