Discourses on Livy by Niccolò Machiavelli( Book )

205 editions published between 1531 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 5,332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discourses on Livy (1531) demonstrates Machiavelli's fundamental preference for the republicanism of ancient Rome. In an age when political absolutism was increasingly the norm, Machiavelli's republican theories would become a dangerous ideology, and his works were placed on the Index of Prohibited Works in 1559. This new translation is richly annotated, providing the contemporary reader with sufficient historical, linguistic and political information to understand and interpret the revolutionary affirmations Machiavelli made, based on the historical evidence he found in Livy

Las páginas que recorren esta historia de Florencia durante la baja Edad Media estan dedicadas a la creciente y "lamentable{OCLCbr#BB} corrupción que experimentó la ciudad y como su maligna influencia encontró caldo de cultivo, estranguló una libertad nacida de entre las ruinas del Imperio Romano en base a una virtúd que libró y defendió a Italia de los bárbaros, y como la precipitó en la tiranía y en la desgracia. En el ámbito exterior esto encontró su reflejo en un manejo indeciso y cobarde de los asuntos militares; y, en el doméstico, Florencia se había convertido en una comunidad condenada a oscilar entrte dos polos igualmente ruinosos, que varían no entre la libertad y la esclavitud sino entre la esclavitud y el libertinaje. Los nobles serían los promotores de lo primero y el pueblo llano de lo segundo, pasando consecuentemente de formas de gobierno tiránicas a licenciosas y viceversa

Set in sixteenth-century Florence, the play blends songs and robust action in detailing the hilarious lengths to which the smitten Callimaco goes in winning the favors of Lucrezia, the beautiful young wife of the rich and aged lawyer, Nicia. Enlisting the aid of the artful trickster Ligurio, Callimaco is passed off as a doctor who has devised a magic potion which, he promises Nicia, will make the heretofore childless Lucrezia conceive. But the cach is that the first man who sleeps with her after she takes the potion will die

The world-renowned philosopher's classic treatise reveals the techniques and strategies for gaining and keeping political control.

Therefore, it is necessary to learn how not to be good," wrote Machiavelli

39 editions published between 1847 and 2015 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Machiavelli's history of Florence is more a history of the politics of Florence rather than the events of Florence. Written late in life while out of favor with the ruling party, Machiavelli felt that his country could have been the grandest republic in the world's history, but that it had failed to live up to its full potential. In this book, he explained why and how that came to be

Selected political writings by Niccolò Machiavelli( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here are The Prince and the most important Discourses, newly translated into spare, vivid English by one of the most gifted historians of his generation. 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 literally does so when the occasion demands: Renderings of that most problematic of words, virtù, 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
