Here are i The Prince i and the most important of the Discourses newly translated into spare vivid English Why a new translation Machiavelli was never the dull worthy pedantic author who appears in the pages of other translations says David Wootton in his Introduction In the pages that follow I have done my best to let him speak in his own voice And indeed Wootton s Machiavelli does just that when the occasion demands renderings of that most problematic of words virtu are in each instance followed by the Italian Notes a map and an altogether remarkable Introduction no less authoritative for being grippingly readable help make this edition an ideal first encounter with Machiavelli for any student of history and political theory, 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, Voltaire said Machiavelli taught Europe the art of war it had long been practiced without being known For Niccol Machiavelli war was war and victory the supreme aim to which all other considerations must be subordinated i The Art of War i is far from an anachronism its pages outline fundamental questions that theorists of war continue to examine today making it essential reading for any student of military history strategy or theory Machiavelli believed i The Art of War i to be his most important work, This volume includes the complete translated texts of both i The Prince i and the i Discourses on the First Ten Books of Titus Livius i Livy along with a historical and critical Introduction by Max Lerner br br Nothing could be more timely than the publication at this moment of history of the two works which made Machiavelli both famous and infamous as a model for contemporary statesmen i The Prince i and i The Discourses i have become required reading for an understanding of our daily newspaper headlines br br These books have never before been printed in a single volume The texts are complete and unabridged An illuminating introduction is provided by Max Lerner who traces the career and thought of the first analyst of power and the uses to which political domination can be put for aggression and the expanding control of the state br from the jacket of the edition
