Machiavelli's New Modes and Orders by Harvey C. Mansfield

Book Description

"Machiavelli's New Modes and Orders" is the only full-length interpretive study on Machiavelli's controversial and ambiguous work, "Discourses on Livy." These discourses, considered by some to be Machiavelli's most important work, are thoroughly explained in a chapter-by-chapter commentary by Harvey C. Mansfield, one of the world's foremost interpreters of this remarkable philosopher. Mansfield's aim is to discern Machiavelli's intention in writing the book: he argues that Machiavelli wanted to introduce new modes and orders in political philosophy in order to make himself the founder of modern politics. Mansfield maintains that Machiavelli deliberately concealed part of his intentions so that only the most perceptive reader could see beneath the surface of the text and understand the whole of his book. Previously out of print, Mansfield's penetrating study brings to light the hidden thoughts lurking in the details of the "Discourses on Livy" to inform and challenge its readers at every step along the way.

Books By Author Harvey C. Mansfield

Statesmanship and Party Government by Harvey C. Mansfield Statesmanship and Party Government, Paperback (March 2013)

Examines the pamphlet war between Edmund Burke and the followers of Henry St John, First Viscount Bolingbroke during the mid-eighteenth century. In this book, the author points out that while parties have always existed, the party government that we know today is possible only because parties are now considered respectable.

Manliness by Harvey C. Mansfield Manliness, Paperback (July 2007)

Drawing from science, literature, and philosophy, this study examines the layers of manliness, from vulgar aggression, to assertive manliness, to manliness as virtue, and to philosophical manliness. It shows that manliness seeks and welcomes drama, prefers times of war, conflict, and risk, and brings change or restores order at crucial moments.

Democracy in America by Harvey C. Mansfield Democracy in America, Paperback (June 2002)

This translation is considered by many to be the definitive edition of de Tocqueville's classic work. Annotated, and with substantial references, placing the work and its author in the broader contexts of political philosophy, the volume also contains a comprehensive introduction.
