ABOUT THIS BOOK

De Alvarez discovers a neglected argument in Machiavelli's masterpiece that encompasses much more than the education of a prince for the salvation of Italy. Building on a wealth of insight, he shows how Machiavelli, the "first political philosopher to turn to the many instead of the few as the basis of rule," sought to replace the domination of the Christian Rome with a civil, secular, and egalitarian state.
