Editorial Reviews

Review

"In this thought-provoking book, Viroli contends that religion and liberty are not incompatible."--Choice

"[T]he book is a very welcome addition to ongoing debates and will remind readers of a strand of Italian history deserving of attention."--Ted H. Miller, Perspectives on Politics

"This book makes a powerful and provocative contribution to today's debates about the compatibility of religion and republicanism."--World Book Industry

From the Inside Flap

"Religion and liberty, each often considered the main enemy of the other, stand together in Maurizio Viroli's thoughtful and daring book. Writing with his usual convincing charm, Viroli studies three highlights of Italian republicanism and finds a common clue to their fame in the formula 'as if God existed.' A must for lovers of Machiavelli--and Italy."--Harvey C. Mansfield, author of Machiavelli's Virtue

"Addressing a fascinating and controversial subject, this book is compellingly argued, brilliantly written, and provocative in the best sense of the word."--Eugenio Biagini, University of Cambridge
