The Prince Summary

“The Prince” is a good book that you can read online or download to read it later.The most famous book on politics ever written, The Prince remains as lively and shocking today as when it was written almost five hundred years ago. Initially denounced as a collection of sinister maxims and a recommendation of tyranny, it has more recently been defended as the first scientific treatment of politics as it is practiced rather than as it ought to be practiced. Harvey C. Mansfield’s brilliant translation of this classic work, along with the new materials added for this edition, make it the definitive version of The Prince, indispensable to scholars, students, and those interested in the dark art of politics. This revised edition of Mansfield’s acclaimed translation features an updated bibliography, a substantial glossary, an analytic introduction, a chronology of Machiavelli’s life, and a map of Italy in Machiavelli’s time. “Of the other available [translations], that of Harvey C. Mansfield makes the necessary compromises between exactness and readability, as well as providing an excellent introduction and notes.”—Clifford Orwin, The Wall Street Journal “Mansfield’s work . . . is worth acquiring as the best combination of accuracy and readability.”—Choice “There is good reason to assert that Machiavelli has met his match in Mansfield. . . . [He] is ready to read Machiavelli as he demands to be read—plainly and boldly, but also cautiously.”—John Gueguen, The Sixteenth Century Journal The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli epub Download

Brief Summary The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli

This book, The Prince, was the summary of what Machiavelli had learned and observed of the qualities of rulers, and was written to impress Lorenzo de’ Medici, in the hope of securing reemployment. In this short book Machiavelli explains, amongst much else, how princes should organise their defences, whether it is better to be feared than loved, and whether a leader must always act virtuously. There is lots of useful advice here, even for leaders today, but it would certainly help to have at least a working knowledge of the politics of Renaissance Italy – there are lots of references to Italian city states like Forli and Ferrara and key figures like Cesare Borgia and Francesco Sforza – to enjoy the book to the maximum.Machiavelli’s writing is not always super easy to follow, but it is not impenetrable. This is one of the great literary works of the past 500 years and is well worth reading for the wisdom in these pages, and for a first hand account of the politics of 16th century Renaissance Italy
