Discourses on Livy by Niccolò Machiavelli( Book )

Discourses on Livy (1531) demonstrates Machiavelli's fundamental preference for the republicanism of ancient Rome. In an age when political absolutism was increasingly the norm, Machiavelli's republican theories would become a dangerous ideology, and his works were placed on the Index of Prohibited Works in 1559. This new translation is richly annotated, providing the contemporary reader with sufficient historical, linguistic and political information to understand and interpret the revolutionary affirmations Machiavelli made, based on the historical evidence he found in Livy

But the cach is that the first man who sleeps with her after she takes the potion will die

Las páginas que recorren esta historia de Florencia durante la baja Edad Media estan dedicadas a la creciente y "lamentable{OCLCbr#BB} corrupción que experimentó la ciudad y como su maligna influencia encontró caldo de cultivo, estranguló una libertad nacida de entre las ruinas del Imperio Romano en base a una virtúd que libró y defendió a Italia de los bárbaros, y como la precipitó en la tiranía y en la desgracia. En el ámbito exterior esto encontró su reflejo en un manejo indeciso y cobarde de los asuntos militares; y, en el doméstico, Florencia se había convertido en una comunidad condenada a oscilar entrte dos polos igualmente ruinosos, que varían no entre la libertad y la esclavitud sino entre la esclavitud y el libertinaje. Los nobles serían los promotores de lo primero y el pueblo llano de lo segundo, pasando consecuentemente de formas de gobierno tiránicas a licenciosas y viceversa

Machiavelli's history of Florence is more a history of the politics of Florence rather than the events of Florence.

In this book, he explained why and how that came to be
