Description

As a diplomat in turbulent fifteenth-century Florence, Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) knew how quickly political fortunes could rise and fall. "The Prince" is his controversial handbook about the dynamics of power, leadership and strategy. Machiavelli's shrewd argument that sometimes it is necessary to abandon ethics to succeed made his name notorious. Consequently, "The Prince" has been read by strategists, politicians and business people ever since.

About Niccolo Machiavelli

Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) was born in Florence. He served the Florentine Republic as a secretary and second chancellor, but was expelled from public life when the Medici family returned to power in 1512. His most famous work, The Prince, was written in an attempt to gain favour with the Medicis and return to politics.

Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) was a Florentine statesman who was later forced out of public life. He then devoted himself to studying and writing political philosophy, history, fiction, and drama.
