Overview

"Between 1513 and 1525 Niccolo Machiavelli wrote a series of works dealing with political, military, and historical matters. Historians of ideas have tended to tidy up the past in order to make it comprehensible but Sydney Anglo is concerned with heterogeneity and with the often irrational and emotional aspects of sixteenth-century thought. Basing his research entirely upon primary sources he quotes extensively in the conviction that, in a battle of words, the words themselves and their tone convey more than summaries of intellectual abstractions." Authors - hostile enthusiastic, and indifferent - are closely examined and many different contexts, political and intellectual, are considered. Sometimes Machiavelli was influential sometimes not, but in this history of his reception, silences often prove significant. Written in a lively and trenchant style, this new interpretation of the impact of Machiavelli is an original contribution by a leading expert in the field of Renaissance studies.
