The Prince: Second Edition
This Description may be from another edition of this product.
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
