Description - The Sweetness of Power by Niccolo Machiavelli

The question of order inspired two of the greatest political thinkers of the Renaissance - Niccolo Machiavelli and Francesco Guicciardini. This authoritative translation links their major works on the nature of government. Political adversaries but nonetheless friends, Machiavelli and Guicciardini both looked to the past to understand the present. Machiavelli examined Roman history in order to identify its underlying political principles while Guicciardini tended to look at the motives of the people who shaped history. Reflecting on ancient Rome, both thinkers refined their conceptions of government with an eye to the political turmoil of their own city of Florence.Based on the definitive Italian editions and including extensive explanatory notes, "The Sweetness of Power" articulates a conflict that resonates throughout the history of western political thought.
