The Prince

Author(s): Niccolò Machiavelli

Adult Fiction

With notes and an apparatus, a new translation of Hegel's essay "Machiavelli's The Prince and Italy," and the first pages of The Prince in the original Italian

At the end of an industrious political career in conflict-riven Italy, the Florentine diplomat Niccolò Machiavelli composed his masterpiece The Prince, a classic study of power and politics, and a manual of ruthlessness for any ambitious ruler. Controversial in his own time, the work made Machiavelli's name a byword for manipulative scheming, and had an impact on such major figures as Napoleon and Frederick the Great. It contains principles as true today as when they were first written almost five centuries ago.
