THE PRINCE was written by Niccolo Machiavelli in the s It has continued to be a best seller in many languages Presently it is translated into modern English with illustrations by Benjamin Martinez and an Introduction by Adolph Cso br br The Prince is a classic book that explores the attainment maintenance and utilization of political power in the western world Machiavelli wrote The Prince to demonstrate his skill in the art of the state presenting advice on how a prince might acquire and hold power Machiavelli defended the notion of rule by force rather than by law Accordingly The Prince seems to rationalize a number of actions done solely to perpetuate power It is an examination of power its attainment development and successful use, Here are i The Prince i and the most important of the Discourses newly translated into spare vivid English Why a new translation Machiavelli was never the dull worthy pedantic author who appears in the pages of other translations says David Wootton in his Introduction In the pages that follow I have done my best to let him speak in his own voice And indeed Wootton s Machiavelli does just that when the occasion demands renderings of that most problematic of words virtu are in each instance followed by the Italian Notes a map and an altogether remarkable Introduction no less authoritative for being grippingly readable help make this edition an ideal first encounter with Machiavelli for any student of history and political theory, Edited and translated by Peter Bondanella and Mark Musa The Portable Machiavelli not only gives the casual reader a chance to read different personal and professional works of Machiavelli but also strives to do away with many of the myths that have plagued the man s posthumous fame For example the famous the ends justifies the means quote is actually a gross exaggeration of what Machiavelli originally wrote which was in the actions of all men when there is no impartial arbiter one must consider the final result The biggest counterargument Bondanella and Musa can supply is the simple fact that they include a less famous piece Machiavelli did called The Discourses This piece is often not mentioned or even casually footnoted because it presents the true Machiavelli a man who was supportive of a Republic government run by the citizens Any one who believes Machiavelli is a supporter of despots will be surprised to read him speaking in support for fair and public trials and a balance of power between rulers and their people, i The Prince and Other Writings i by b Niccolo Machiavelli b is

pulls together a constellation of influences biographical historical and literary to enrich each reader s understanding of these enduring works br br br One of history s greatest political philosophers b Niccol Machiavelli b is notorious for his treatise i The Prince i which has become a cornerstone of modern political theory Written in and published in after Machivelli s death i The Prince i immediately provoked controversy that has continued unabated to this day br br Defining human nature as inherently selfish Machiavelli proposes that social conflict and violence are natural phenomena that help determine the ablest most versatile form of government Asserting that idealism has no place in the political arena i The Prince i primarily addresses a monarch s difficulties in retaining authority Considered the first expression of political realism it has often been accused of advocating a political philosophy in which the end justifies the means Indeed the emphasis in i The Prince i on practical success at the expense even of traditional moral values earned Machiavelli a reputation for ruthlessness deception and cruelty Many scholars contend however that the author s pragmatic views of ethics and politics reflected the realities of his time as exemplified by the Medici family of Florence br br Debates about Machiavelli s theories are as lively today as they were years ago but no one questions the importance of his fundamental contribution to Western political thought This newly translated edition also includes Machiavelli s i Letter to Francesco Vettori i i
