No description available, 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, This Special Edition of The Art of War amp The Prince by Machiavelli unites both of Machiavelli s renowned volumes on strategy so that the philosophy and mechanisms for obtaining power and managing power may be seen as a single entity Possessed of a great intellect Niccolo Machiavelli was uniquely suited to examine and explain the important details of statecraft Machiavelli like Plato and Pythagoras and Confucius two hundred odd decades before him saw only one method by which a thinking man himself not powerful might do the work of state building and that was by seizing the imagination of a Prince With these writings he has influenced the history of the world Machiavelli has so influenced human civilization that the very term Machiavellian has come to mean that which is characterized by expediency deceit and cunning A prime example is his advice A wise prince when he has the opportunity ought with craft to foster some animosity against himself so that having crushed it his renown may rise higher His advice on this and other suggested intrigues has been heeded by various heads of state for over four hundred years Other Special Editions in this series that deal with the subject of warfare and strategy include br The Art of War By Sun Tzu Special Edition br The Art of War By Mao Tse tung Special Edition br The Art of War By Baron De Jomini Special Edition, 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
