"Of the other available [translations], that of Harvey C. Mansfield makes the necessary compromises between exactness and readability, as well as providing an excellent introduction and notes."—Clifford Orwin, The Wall Street Journal
"Mansfield's work . . . is worth acquiring as the best combination of accuracy and readability."—Choice
"There is good reason to assert that Machiavelli has met his match in Mansfield. . . . [He] is ready to read Machiavelli as he demands to be read—plainly and boldly, but also cautiously."—John Gueguen, The Sixteenth Century Journal
The Kindle version for The Prince includes bonus annotated content including:
“Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are.” -Nicolò Machiavelli ; The Prince
The Prince is a 16th-century political treatise by the Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli.
The Prince is sometimes claimed to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, especially modern political philosophy, in which the "effectual" truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal. It is also notable for being in direct conflict with the dominant Catholic and scholastic doctrines of the time, particularly those concerning politics and ethics.
Although it is relatively short, the treatise is the most remembered of Machiavelli's works and the one most responsible for bringing the word "Machiavellian" into usage as a pejorative. It even contributed to the modern negative connotations of the words "politics" and "politician" in western countries.
A True Classic that Belongs on Every Bookshelf!
In this, the least known of his works, Machiavelli gives straightforward advice on organising and conducting military operations. "The Art of War"’s clear, and concise style is diametrically opposed to that of "The Prince". The book is wholly practical and considers contrasting arguments. Its format is that of a conversation between a military expert and interested citizens. Although the expert, Fabrizio, is obviously Machiavelli himself, the format provides at least an arguable degree of separation between Machiavelli and his advice.
Per il prologo e ogni atto è proposto un riassunto puntuale. In appendice vengono evidenziati gli elementi di rilievo dell’opera oltre che della vita e del pensiero di Niccolò Machiavelli attraverso schemi e mappe concettuali.
(Niccolò Machiavelli, Il Principe)
Il Principe (titolo assegnato nell'edizione originale postuma di Antonio Blado e poi unanimemente adottato, ma il titolo originario era in lingua latina: De Principatibus, "Sui Principati") è un trattato di dottrina politica scritto da Niccolò Machiavelli nel 1513, nel quale espone le caratteristiche dei principati e dei metodi per mantenerli e conquistarli. Si tratta senza dubbio della sua opera più nota e celebrata, quella dalle cui massime (spesso superficialmente interpretate) sono nati il sostantivo "machiavellismo" e l'aggettivo "machiavellico".
Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli noto semplicemente come Niccolò Machiavelli (Firenze, 3 maggio 1469 – Firenze, 21 giugno 1527) è stato uno storico, filosofo, scrittore, politico e drammaturgo italiano, secondo cancelliere della Repubblica Fiorentina dal 1498 al 1512.

The format of 'The Art of War' was in socratic dialogue. The purpose, declared by Fabrizio (Machiavelli's persona) at the outset, "To honor and reward virtù, not to have contempt for poverty, to esteem the modes and orders of military discipline, to constrain citizens to love one another, to live without factions, to esteem less the private than the public good." To these ends, Machiavelli notes in his preface, the military is like the roof of a palazzo protecting the contents.
Written between 1519 and 1520 and published the following year, it was the only historical or political work printed during Machiavelli's lifetime, though he was appointed official historian of Florence in 1520 and entrusted with minor civil duties.
