The prince and other writings by Niccol Machiavelli( Book )

Frequently misunderstood over the centuries as an unprincipled manual for manipulators and tyrants, careful reading of "The Prince" shows that it identifies freedom as an essential characteristic of a good society - Machiavelli sets out axioms for success and order amid the often violent political intrigues that characterized Renaissance Europe. Combining fine photographic illustrations with a new translation of one of the great literary works of history, this classic text examines the relationship between moral goodness and legitimate authority, setting out timeless principles for pursuing power and fortune and using them to best effect in securing order and peace. Much of Machiavelli's republican thought can be identified in the American constitution, and many of his ideas - such as the belief that life is subject to change and that the winners will be those flexible enough to adapt - remain as applicable today as they were half a millennium ago

The discourses of Niccolò Machiavelli by Niccol Machiavelli( Book )

"Both Machiavelli and Guicciardini looked to the past to understand the present. In his Discourses on the First Decade of Livy, Machiavelli examined Roman history in order to identify its underlying political principles. Guicciardini, who would go on from a career in politics to write his monumental History of Italy, tended to look at the motives of the people who shaped history. Reflecting on ancient Rome, both thinkers refined their conceptions of government with an eye to the political turmoil of their own Florence." "Based on the definitive Italian editions and including extensive explanatory notes, The Sweetness of Power re-creates a fascinating conflict that helped to shape the history of western political thought."--Jacket
Mandragola by Niccol Machiavelli( Book )

457 editions published between 1550 and 2015 in 21 languages and held by 2,631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Capolavoro della commedia rinascimentale, la Mandragola fu composta da Machiavelli dopo il suo allontanamento forzoso dalla politica. La vicenda ruota intorno alla beffa giocata da un giovane fiorentino a un marito sciocco per possederne la moglie di cui si era invaghito. Un ruolo determinante nel convincimento della donna ha il suo confessore, corrotto dai denari dell'amante. Nella commedia il tema realistico della beffa, di matrice boccacciana, si rapprende in una perfetta macchina teatrale, rispettosa fin nei particolari più minuti delle regole della commedia antica (Plauto e Terenzio). Attraverso il format della commedia Machiavelli tenta di definire un'antropologia della vita quotidiana, analogamente a come nelle opere politiche veniva descrivendo l'antropologia del potere. Si scopre così che non c'è differenza tra una sfera e l'altra: sono sempre e soltanto l'utile e il piacere a muovere gli uomini. Quando però il simulare e il dissimulare dell'agire politico si trasferiscono nella quotidianità, la realtà si fa doppia o tripla, nascono situazioni paradossali che sono di per sé comiche. Il paradosso tocca i valori della famiglia, della morale privata, della religione. Prendono forma le prime creature fredde e amorali della letteratura moderna, senza che nulla venga sottratto alla vivacità e al divertimento. La Mandragola è presentata qui in un nuovo testo critico e con un commento per la prima volta esauriente

Therefore, it is necessary to learn how not to be good," wrote Machiavelli

This work is a 16th-century political treatise written by the Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527). The first two chapters describe the book's scope, defines the various types of principalities and princes and introduces the book's main concerns -- power politics, war craft, and popular goodwill. The author offers practical advice on a variety of matters, including the advantages and disadvantages of various routes to political power, how to acquire and hold new states, how to deal with internal insurrection, how to make alliances, and how to maintain a strong military. Implicit in these chapters are Machiavelli's views regarding free will, human nature, and ethics. He then discusses the qualities of the prince himself. Broadly speaking, this discussion is guided by his underlying view that lofty ideals translate into bad government. This premise is especially true with respect to personal virtue. Certain virtues may be admired for their own sake, but for a prince to act in accordance with virtue is often detrimental to the state. Similarly, certain vices may be frowned upon, but vicious actions are sometimes indispensable to the good of the state. Machiavelli combines this line of reasoning with another: the theme that obtaining the goodwill of the populace is the best way to maintain power. Thus, the appearance of virtue may be more important than true virtue, which may be seen as a liability. The final sections link the book to a specific historical context: Italy's disunity. Machiavelli sets down his account and explanation of the failure of past Italian rulers and concludes with an impassioned plea to the future rulers of the nation. Machiavelli asserts the belief that only Lorenzo de' Medici, to whom the book is dedicated, can restore Italy's honor and pride
