"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 Niccolò Machiavelli( Book )

426 editions published between 1550 and 2015 in 18 languages and held by 2,778 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

The world-renowned philosopher's classic treatise reveals the techniques and strategies for gaining and keeping political control. "How we live is so far removed from how we ought to live, that he who abandons what is done for what ought to be done, will rather bring about his own ruin than his preservation. Therefore, it is necessary to learn how not to be good," wrote Machiavelli

From praise for the 1965 edition:Allan Gilbert is unquestionably the most accurate and reliable translator of Machiavelli into English; the publication of this edition is an altogether happy occasion.

The arte of warre by Niccolò Machiavelli( Book )

231 editions published between 1535 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Collected here in one onmibus edition are Niccolò Machiavelli's most import works, The art of war and The prince. It was Niccolò Machiavelli who essentially removed ethics from government. He did it with The prince, when he asserted that the prince (president, dictator, prime minister, etc.) does not have to be concerned with ethics, as long as their motivation is to protect the state. It is this questionable belief that in many ways had lead to the modern world as we know it. His assertion was that the head of state must protest the state no matter the cost ans no matter what rules he or she breaks in the process. If you want to understand modern politics you must read this book. Machiavelli considered The art of war his greatest achievement. Here you will learn how to recruit, train, motivate, and discipline an army. You will learn the difference between strategy and tactics. Machiavelli does a masterful job of breaking down and analyzing historic battles. This book of knowledge belongs alongside Sun-Tzu and Clausewitz on every book shelf."--Page 4 of cover

Niccolo Machiavelli taught that political leaders must be prepared to do evil that good may come of it, and his name has been a byword ever since for duplicity and immorality. Is his sinister reputation deserved? In answering this question Quentin Skinner focuses on three major works, The Prince, the Discourses, and The History of Florence, and distills from them an introduction to Machiavelli of exemplary clarity.-publisher description

The prince by Niccolò Machiavelli( Book )

17 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'When Machiavelli's brief treatise on Renaissance statecraft and princely power was posthumously published in 1532, it generated a debate that has raged unabated until the present day. Based upon Machiavelli's firsthand experience as an emissary of the Florentine Republic to the courts of Europe, The Prince analyses the usually violent means by which mean seize, retain, and lose political power. Machiavelli added a dimension of incisive realism to one of the major philosophical and political issues of his time, especially the relationship between public deeds and private morality. His book provides a remarkably uncompromising picture of the true nature of power, no matter in what era or by whom it is exercised"--Cover page 4
