The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli

The Prince

by Niccolo Machiavelli

Unabridged Edition
Share This


Machiavelli's famous treatise on statecraft is as timely today as when it ws first published in 1517. Using as his model Cesare Borgia, a Florentine prince who stopped at nothing to achieve and hold politcal position, it still has the power to shock. Machiavelli states what most governments do (but few admit) to keep "corrupt" human nature in check. He suggests that leaders must be ruthlessly despotic as well as cunningly magnanimous; that cruelty is sometimes mercy in disguise; and that it is safer to be feared than to be loved. Its shrewd psychological insight, prophetic quality, and vehement prose have made The Prince an enduring classic, stunningly relevant to our times.
