Widely read for its insights into history and politics, The Prince is one of the most provocative works of the Italian Renaissance. Based on Niccolo Machiavelli's observations of the effectiveness of both ancient and contemporary statesmen, the rules for governing set forth in his manual were considered radical and harsh by his contemporaries and shocking to many others since then. This major new edition combines an accurate and accessible new translation with important related documents, many of which appear here in English for the first time. In his clear yet comprehensive introductory essay, William J. Connell offers fresh insights into Machiavelli's life, the meaning of his work, the context in which it was written, and its influence over time. Document headnotes, maps, a chronology of Machiavelli's life, questions for consideration, a selected bibliography, and index provide further pedagogical support.

“Seminal”

The beauty in this work is the seeming simplicity behind the logic that Nicollo argues with. Whilst the book is short the ponderings are heavy and some chapters very short indeed. I found that this is a book that you... More
