Machiavelli's Virtue by Harvey C. Mansfield

Book Description

Uniting thirty years of authoritative scholarship by a master of textual detail, "Machiavelli's Virtue" is a comprehensive statement on the founder of modern politics. Harvey Mansfield reveals the role of sects in Machiavelli's politics, his advice on how to rule indirectly, and the ultimately partisan character of his project, and shows him to be the founder of such modern and diverse institutions such as the impersonal state and the energetic executive. Accessible and elegant, this groundbreaking interpretation explains the puzzles and reveals the ambition of Machiavelli's thought."The book brings together essays that have mapped [Mansfield's] paths of reflection over the past thirty years. . . . The ground, one would think, is ancient and familiar, but Mansfield manages to draw out some understandings, or recognitions, jarringly new".--Hadley Arkes, "New Criterion" "Mansfield's book more than rewards the close reading it demands".--Colin Walters, "Washington Times" "[A] masterly new book on the Renaissance courtier, statesman and political philosopher. . . . Mansfield seeks to rescue Machiavelli from liberalism's anodyne rehabilitation".--Roger Kimball, "The Wall Street Journal"

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.
