Editorial Reviews

Review

Wootton's Introduction is an excellent piece of work that offers both scholars and students a valuable guide to Machiavelli's texts. --Maurizio Viroli, Princeton University This text is perfect for providing in a single text a balanced presentation of Machiavelli's work. This works excellently in countering general perceptions of a more severe Machiavelli by those familiar only with The Prince. The selections from the Discourses are well chosen. --Brian Caza, Georgetown College The Introduction is vibrant, comprehensive and persuasive. Manages to address the needs of undergraduates while constituting an original contribution to contemporary scholarship. Bravo! --Alan Houston, University of California, San Diego

Machiavelli certainly has a bad reputation, it seems. I was curious to see what all of the fuss was about. I definitely have a different view than most regarding the style Machiavelli writes. He seems more like a realist than an advocate for evil. These writings are expertly organized and history is provided which helps to put the writings into the perspective of the times.

Format: Paperback
The Prince is a book everyone should read in order to understand how many kings and rulers who followed his philosphies drew their inpsiration from.
Discources is simply outstanding. It will give you a deep appreciation of not only this man's erudition, but also of his great mind.
All this for under 10 dollars! What are you waiting for?
