Prince by Nicolo Machiavelli
Book DescriptionAn obscure civil servant, dead for nearly 500 years, author of but one major work, yet whose name is still in common use. Remarkable? Not when the civil servant is Nicolo Machiavelli, and when the book is The Prince. Written in 1513 as a gift for the ruling prince, Lorenzo de Medici, The Prince has retained its reputation as one of the most perceptive analyses on politics and power ever written. Valued for its brilliant writing, shrewd psychological insight, canny advice, and prophetic qualities, it has never lost its power to shock and influence, or to illuminate the heart of darkness. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to know the real meaning of "political hardball." Ian Richardson's formidable reading of this unabridged translation is an accessible and entertaining introduction to Machiavelli's truly compelling, eerily prescient worldview.
