"Both Machiavelli and Guicciardini looked to the past to understand the present. In his Discourses on the First Decade of Livy, Machiavelli examined Roman history in order to identify its underlying political principles. Guicciardini, who would go on from a career in politics to write his monumental History of Italy, tended to look at the motives of the people who shaped history. Reflecting on ancient Rome, both thinkers refined their conceptions of government with an eye to the political turmoil of their own Florence." "Based on the definitive Italian editions and including extensive explanatory notes, The Sweetness of Power re-creates a fascinating conflict that helped to shape the history of western political thought."--Jacket

Machiavelli's history of Florence is more a history of the politics of Florence rather than the events of Florence.

In this book, he explained why and how that came to be

In answering this question Quentin Skinner focuses on three major works, The Prince, the Discourses, and The History of Florence, and distills from them an introduction to Machiavelli of exemplary clarity.-publisher description
