Description

An examination on the cold, hard realities of maintaining power, Machiavelli's The Prince is both a meditation on history and a philosophical guide to politics. Machiavelli examines the successes and failures of all sorts of societies, criticizing the idealized concept of a morally pure leader in favor of a more realist approach. But is it really encouraging amorality, or is it a satire against the abuse of power? Rarely has a book been interpreted in so many contradictory ways and yet remained so influential.

    This Book is just absolutely incredible, and also horrible, it shows us how people are fickle and will do in their own interest and not in yours. He means to trust nobody.
