Product Description

Historians often characterize Machiavelli as a ruthless leader or an early 'modern' philosopher; however, in 'An Unlikely Prince,' author Niccolo Capponi presents a comprehensive account of Machiavelli as a totally un-Machiavellian man. Using Machiavelli's own city of Florence as a cultural reference point, Capponi examines Machiavelli's choices and motivations as he grows from obscurity to a world-renowned thinker. A complex portait of Machiavelli emerges- a man with grounded ambitions who was also a dreamer; a serious power-broker who was also a jokester and gambler. 'An Unlikely Prince' is the story of a one-of-a-kind man who can only be understood in the context of his home city.
