More About Niccolo Machiavelli's the Prince on the Art of Power by Cary J. Nederman
 
 
 
Overview
With a scene-setting historical introduction, this newly translated and illustrated edition of a classic work is an essential addition to any home library.

Written in 1512, The Prince is the masterpiece by Florentine political philosopher, poet, and playwright Niccol Machiavelli. Although Machiavelli's book has been frequently misunderstood as a manual for unprincipled manipulators and tyrants, careful reading reveals that it actually identifies freedom as an essential characteristic of a good society. In fact, much of Machiavelli's republican thought can be identified in the American constitution, and many of his ideas--such as the belief that life is subject to change and that the winners will be those flexible enough to adapt--remain as applicable today as they were half a millennium ago.
