An eminent political scientist and government official here offers witty and trenchant counsel on what leaders need to know in order to be effective--how to deal with war and crises, diplomacy, secret intelligence, political advisors, the media, and more. "A tour de force...Lord's understanding of the workings of government, both ancient and modern, is profound, and his ability to assimilate the two, makes The Modern Prince indispensable...As a handbook for leaders it deserves to become an instant classic."--Brian M. Carney, Wall Street Journal "Our politics will be a lot healthier if our politicians can be persuaded to read Carnes Lord's engaging and penetrating book. And even if the politicians don't take Lord to heart, we should, so we can learn how to select better leaders."--William Kristol, Editor, The Weekly Standard "This wonderful book covers everything you need to know about politics today."--Harvey Mansfield, Harvard University
