Product Description

(Eminent Lives series). The author of The Prince - his controversial handbook on power and swagger, which is one of the most influential books ever written - Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) was no prince himself. Born to an established middle-class family, he worked as a courtier and diplomat for the Republic of Florence and enjoyed some small fame in his time as the author of bawdy plays and poems. This discerning new biography rescues Machiavelli's legacy from caricature, detailing the vibrant political and social context that influenced his thought. Notes, Selected Bibliography. 245p.
