Five hundred years after its publication, Niccolò Machiavelli's The Prince still holds the power to inspire and provoke. To these longstanding controversies, Dr. Philip Bobbitt brings credentials of diverse expertise: He has not only taught at Harvard and Columbia; he is the Director of the Center for National Security and served in important post under presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. In The Garments of Court and Palace, he argues that what has often been called the most influential book on politics is also the most misunderstood. Drawing on texts and cases from the Renaissance to the present day, he explains why The Prince is one half of a masterpiece we can't afford to ignore. A major work by the man Henry Kissinger called "the outstanding political philosopher of our time."
