About the Author:
Niccolò Machiavelli was born in Florence in 1469. At the young age of twenty-nine, he entered government service in the city state of Florence as Second Chancellor, a senior post, with responsibilities for relations between Florence and its subject territories in Tuscany and more broadly for foreign affairs. Along with various treatises, plays, and poems, he wrote The Prince (1513), the Discourses (c.1514-1519), the Art of War (1521), and the Florentine Histories (1520-1525). He died in 1527.

If you EVER wish to understand the fundamental mistakes being made by 21st century American and the world's democracies in both foreign and domestic relations, this book is an invaluable guide. You'll laugh at Machiavelli's stories, and then cry to see the same mistakes repeated in today's headlines. America, YOU are Florence!
