Selected Political Writings by Niccolo Machiavelli

Book Description

Here are The Prince and the most important of the Discourses newly translated into spare, vivid English. Why a new translation? Machiavelli was never the dull, worthy, pedantic author who appears in the pages of other translations, says David Wootton in his Introduction. In the pages that follow I have done my best to let him speak in his own voice. (And indeed, Woottons Machiavelli does just that when the occasion demands: renderings of that most problematic of words, virtu, are in each instance followed by the Italian). Notes, a map, and an altogether remarkable Introduction no less authoritative for being grippingly readable, help make this edition an ideal first encounter with Machiavelli for any student of history and political theory.

Books By Author Niccolo Machiavelli

Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli Prince, Hardback (September 2015)

A classic study of statemanship and power politics, The Prince is one of the most influential books ever written. Illustrated with stunning Renaissance images that conjure up the world of secular power and competing allegiances of the city states of Italy and in particular Florence where Machiavelli lived.

Professional guidance from history's greatest philosophers The quest for the perfect life is nothing new. If you are looking for guidance to help navigate the pitfalls of your professional and personal life then you could do worse than listening to the great philosophers Plato and Machiavelli.
