Summary
The world's most influential-and controversial-treatise on politicsComposed in exile and published posthumously, The Prince is Niccolò Machiavelli's legacy and the foundation of modern political theory. Drawing on his firsthand experiences as a diplomat and military commander in the Florentine Republic, Machiavelli disregards the rhetorical flourishes and sentimentality typically found in sixteenth-century mirrors for princes-guides instructing noblemen in the fine art of ruling-and gets straight to practical matters: how to eliminate rivals, when to use force, whether it is better to be loved
