Sam RobertsProfessor Siegel, who wrote this book with help from his son Harry, borrows his title from Machiavelli, the 16th-century political handler whose cynical pragmatism is periodically invoked as a framework for Mr. Giuliani's performance.

Like Borgia, Mr. Giuliani was not necessarily a prince of a guy.
