Publisher Description:
A new translation by Peter Constantine
Introduction by Albert Russell Ascoli

The first modern treatise of political philosophy, The Prince is one of the world's most influential and widely read books. Machiavelli reveals nothing less than the secrets of power: how to gain it, how to wield it, and how to keep it. Ruthless, cunning, and amoral, The Prince is a controversial analysis of manipulation and an essential guide for anyone interested in conquest, self-defense, or observation of dominance and control. The Introduction by noted Italian Renaissance scholar Albert Russell Ascoli provides a perfect opening to Peter Constantine's illuminating new translation of this seminal work.

"Constantine elegantly captures in English the pith of Machiavelli's brilliant Italian prose."--Edward Muir, Clarence L. Ver Steeg Professor in the Arts and Sciences, Northwestern University
