Guicciardini: Dialogue on the Government of Florenceby Francesco Guicciardini
Pub. Date: 06/09/1994
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Arguing for the priority of state interest, like Machiavelli, his contemporary and friend, Guicciardini acknowledged the important role of patronage and graft in politics as well as the illegitimacy of nearly all forms of political power. This edition is the first English translation of his classic 1520s work.
