Abstract:

Using as his model Cesare Borgia, a Florentine price who stopped at nothing to achieve and hold political position, it still has the power to shock. Machiavelli states what most governments do (but few admit) to keep 'corrupt' human nature in check. He suggests that leaders must be ruthlessly despotic as well as cunningly magnanimous - that cruelty is sometimes mercy in disguise - and that it is safer to be feared than to be loved.
