Editorial Reviews

This political treatise by Italian Renaissance writer Machiavelli is a classic, popular with business people and politicians. Widely criticized but endorsed by many, this guide for a prince's political success suggests that politics should be kept separate from theological and moral considerations, a revolutionary premise in the 16th century. To preserve the state, Machiavelli argues, it is often necessary, to act, with a certain degree of cynicism, "against mercy, against faith, against humanity, against frankness, against religion," a view that certainly has parallels in today's political arena. The neutral narration by Pedro Montoya is often too fast paced for the complexity of the work, making it difficult to understand its ideas. Also, the use of the Castilian vosotros might mislead some listeners. The complex ideas are better grasped by reading than by listening, and so this audiotape is not recommended. (Also available in CD for $14.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    El Príncipe (en el original en italiano: Il Principe) es un tratado de doctrina política escrito por Nicolás Maquiavelo en 1513 mientras se encontraba confinado en San Casciano por la acusación de haber conspirado en contra de los Médici. Maquiavelo dedicó la obra a Lorenzo II de Médici, hijo de Pedro II de Medici, con la esperanza de reconquistar el encargo de Secretario de la República, y fue publicada póstumamente en 1532. Se trata sin duda de su obra con más renombre, aquella por la cual ha nacido el sustantivo "maquiavelismo" y el adjetivo "maquiavélico".

    A pesar del uso despectivo que confiere al término "maquiavélico" no es otra cosa sino una obra dotada de un gran conocimiento de la psique humana, un enorme sentido común y mucho pragmatismo. Tanto es así, que muchos hombres de negocios y políticos han extrapolado algunas de sus ideas.
