This 1720 copy of a how-to book on political intrigue is a must-have for students of politics

THIS JUST IN: Here is a must-have volume for any serious student of political theory. The Works of the Famous Nicolas Machiavel, Citizen and Secretary of Florence is a collection of the writings of Italian historian and philosopher Nicholas Machiavelli, whose name is synonymous with unscrupulous political maneuverings. Some scholars suggest Machiavelli may have gotten a bad rap when it comes to secret skullduggery designed to maintain power at any cost. They even say his most famous work, The Prince, was clearly satire, and point to other writing that heavily influenced John Adams and other Founding Fathers in establishing the Constitution of the United States, as proof that Machiavelli was misinterpreted. This is a third English-language edition published in London in 1720. Section titles include The History of Florence, The Prince, The Discourses and The Art of War. To enquire about his volume, please call (727) 822-3278
