Publisher Comments:

With notes and an apparatus, a new translation of Hegel's essay "Machiavelli's The Prince and Italy," and the first pages of The Prince in the original Italian

At the end of an industrious political career in conflict-riven Italy, the Florentine diplomat Niccolò Machiavelli composed his masterpiece The Prince, a classic study of power and politics, and a manual of ruthlessness for any ambitious ruler. Controversial in his own time, the work made Machiavelli's name a byword for manipulative scheming, and had an impact on such major figures as Napoleon and Frederick the Great. It contains principles as true today as when they were first written almost five centuries ago.

About the Author

Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527) is most famous for his treatise The Prince, which has become a cornerstone of modern political thought. J. G. Nichols was awarded the John Florio Prize for his translation of the poems of Guido Gozzano. His translation of Petrarch's Canzoniere won the Premio Internazionale Diego Valeri in 2000.
