Essential Writings of Machiavelli by Niccolo Machiavelli

Book Description

FINALIST--2008 PEN TRANSLATION PRIZEIn "The Essential Writings of Machiavelli, " Peter Constantine has assembled a comprehensive collection that shows the true depth and breadth of a great Renaissance thinker. Refreshingly accessible, these superb new translations are faithful to Machiavelli s original, beautifully crafted writings. The volume features essays that appear in English for the first time, such as A Caution to the Medici and The Persecution of Africa. Also included are complete versions of the political treatise, "The Prince," the comic satire "The Mandrake," "The Life of Castruccio Castracani," and the classic story Belfagor, along with selections from "The Discourses, The Art of War, " and "Florentine Histories." Augmented with useful features vital and concise annotations and cross-references this unique compendium is certain to become the standard one-volume reference to this influential, versatile, and ever timely writer. Machiavelli's stress on political necessityrather thanmoral perfection helped inspire the Renaissance by renewing links with Thucydides and other classical thinkers. This new collection providesdeeper insight into Machiavelli s personality as a writer, thus broadening our understanding of him. Robert D. Kaplan, author of W"arrior Politics: Why Leadership Demands a Pagan Ethos" Constantine s selection is not only intelligent; his translations are astonishingly good. Thoughtfully introduced by Albert Russell Ascoli, this edition belongs in everyone s library. John Jeffries Martin, professor and chair, department of history, Trinity University If one were to assign a single edition of Machiavelli's works, this most certainly would be it. John P. McCormick, professor, department of political science, University of Chicago"

Author Biography - Niccolo Machiavelli

Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) was born in Florence. He served the Florentine republic as secretary and second chancellor, but was expelled from public life when the Medici family returned to power in 1512. His most famous work, "The Prince," was a written attempt to reingratiate himself with the Medicis and return to politics. Peter Constantine is the recipient of a PEN Translation Prize and a National Translation Award. His Modern Library translations include "Voltaire s Canidide, Tolstoy s The Cossacks," and Gogol s "Taras Bulba." He lives in New York City."
