A new translation of the infamous classic, now in a striking deluxe edition. "The Prince" shocked 16th-century Europe with its advocacy of ruthless tactics for gaining absolute sovereignty, and it retains its power to alarm and to instruct.

Review: The Prince

User Review  - Andy - Goodreads

An excellent translation of a classic work with an even better introduction. For those who are interested in "reading" The Prince without reading it - the intro and note from the translator are perfect. Read full review

Review: The Prince

User Review  - Alexandra - Goodreads
