Publisher Description

Widely regarded as one of the sincerest looks at the seizure and retention of power, the lessons Machiavelli learned from Florentine and Roman politics have been used for centuries by political elites around the world. While terrifying in their brutality, they nonetheless describe a world as it was, and can be applied to understand our world as it is. 


Illustrations have been added to the beautifully translated Marriot text to enhance the reading experience.
