More About This Book

Overview

Over the centuries Machiavelli's name has increasingly been used to describe traits of ruthless deviousness in politics - such is the potent legacy of his incredible body of work.

Appointed as Secretary and Second Chancellor to the Florentine Republic in 1498, Machiavelli in many ways typifies the renaissance politician: realistic, ruthless, clear-sighted, devious and utilitarian.

In his most famous work "the Prince", Machiavelli seeks to impart these values in what is effectively a handbook for rulers on the nature of power - be they actual Princes or otherwise.

Likewise Machiavelli's "The Art of War", provides a renaissance counterpoint to Sun Tzu's Ancient Chinese book of the same name. Both books represent a pinnacle of clear-sighted ingenuity on the subject.

There are several other great works by Niccolo Machiavelli in this collection. The Complete list is as follows:

- The Prince

- The Art of War

- The Life of Castruccio Castracani of Lucca

- Discourses on the First Decade of Titus Livius

- Description Of The Methods Adopted By The Duke Valentino When Murdering Vitellozzo Vitelli, Oliverotto Da Fermo, The Signor Pagolo, And The Duke Di Gravina Orsini

- History of Florence and of the Affairs of Italy, From the Earliest Times to the Death of Lorenzo the Magnificent
