"An essential handbook for those who intend to succeed" (Rosemary Goring Herald)
"Everyone should have a copy of Machiavelli's The Prince, whose original purpose may have been to counsel Renaissance rulers in the art of statecraft but is still applicable to and, indeed, acted on by modern politicians and power-brokers" ( Guardian)
"If one were to assign a single edition of Machiavelli's works, this most certainly would be it" (John. P. McCormick, Professor of Political Science, University of Chicago)
"Peter Constantine has produced a sharp, fluent translation that will introduce The Prince to a new generation of English readers... The most striking - indeed shocking - feature of the book, expertly rendered by Constantine, is its cold blooded tone." (Michael Arditti Daily Telegraph)
A refreshingly accessible new translation of this timely and dynamic classic work about the corrupting effects of power
