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.

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."
