Niccolò Machiavelli Perhaps one of the most influential and controversial books in history, Machiavelli’s The Prince raises issues that are still debated centuries after its publication. The theories he developed in The Prince were derived from his observation of the successes and failures of the ruling class. The Prince was designed as a practical guide for newly appointed rulers and is required reading for all persons in a position of authority who strive for grandeur in business and politics.

A must listen for all listeners interested in history, culture, military subjects, business strategy, and strategy in general.
Niccolò Machiavelli The Prince is considered the all-time best book on political strategy. It has of late become a much-referred-to book for all competitive situations. Machiavelli's name is associated closely with his philosophy, as he well deserves. His other works are worth reading or hearing, as well, especially his Art of War and Belfagor: The Devil Who Took a Wife.
Niccolò Machiavelli The Prince, Machiavelli's 'little book', was written in 1513 and is dedicated to Lorenzo de' Medici. It remains a compelling and controversial treatise on politics, dispensing often cynical, sometimes brutal advice on gaining power and retaining it. Essential listening for our masters perhaps, but most certainly for those of us who would not be mastered. The text used here is the unabridged and classic translation by W. K. Marriott.
Niccolò Machiavelli The first modern treatise of political philosophy,
The Prince remains one of the world's most influential and widely read books. Machiavelli, whose name has become synonymous with expedient exercises of will, reveals nothing less than the secrets of power: how to gain it, how to wield it, and how to keep it. But curiously, this work of outspoken clarity has, for centuries, inspired myriad interpretations as to its author's true message.
Niccolò Machiavelli From his perspective in Renaissance Italy, Machiavelli's aim in this classic work was to resolve conflict with the ruling prince, Lorenzo de Medici. Machiavelli based his insights on the way people really are rather than an ideal of how they should be. This is the world's most famous master plan for seizing and holding power. Astonishing in its candor The Prince even today remains a disturbingly realistic and prophetic work on what it takes to be a prince, a king, or a president. When Machiavelli was removed from his post in his beloved Florence, he resolved to set down a treatise on leadership that was practical, not idealistic. The Prince he envisioned would be unencumbered by ordinary ethical and moral values. Even today, this sixteenth-century classic has become essential listening for every student of government, and is the ultimate audiobook on power politics.
Niccolò Machiavelli The Prince has long been both praised and reviled for its message of moral relativism and political expediency. Although a large part is devoted to the mechanics of gaining and staying in power, Machiavelli's end purpose is to maintain a just and stable government. He is not ambiguous in stating his belief that committing a small cruelty to avert a larger one is not only justifiable, but required of a just ruler.
Machiavelli gives a vivid portrayal of his world: the chaos and tumult of early 16th-century Florence, Italy and Europe. He uses both his contemporary political situation and that of the classical period to illustrate his precepts of statecraft.
Niccolò Machiavelli Machiavelli cut his political teeth during the Renaissance, a time of intense hatred between Italian city states. Machiavelli was a man of action, a devout patriot. He wrote The Prince to describe how a leader could unite Italy and put a stop to the senseless conflict. This edition includes an addenda and Machiavelli's biography of Castruccio Castracani: his archetypal prince.

Niccolò Machiavelli Niccolo Machiavelli's Art of War is one of the world's great classics of military and political theory. Praised by the finest military minds in history and said to have influenced no lesser lights than Frederick the Great and Napoleon, the Art of War is essential for anyone who wants to understand the history and theory of war in the West and for those familiar with The Prince and Discourse on Livy who seek to explore more fully the connection between war and politics in Machiavelli's thought.
Machiavelli scholar Christopher Lynch offers a sensitive and entirely new translation of the Art of War, faithful to the original but rendered in modern, idiomatic English. Lynch's fluid translation helps listeners appreciate anew Machiavelli's brilliant treatments of the relationships between war and politics, civilians and the military, and technology and tactics. Clearly laying out the fundamentals of military organization and strategy, Machiavelli marshals a veritable armory of precepts, prescriptions, and examples about such topics as how to motivate your soldiers and demoralize the enemy's, avoid ambushes, and gain the tactical and strategic advantage in countless circumstances. To help listeners better appreciate the Art of War, Lynch provides an insightful introduction that covers its historical and political context, sources, influence, and contemporary relevance. He also includes a substantial interpretive essay discussing the military, political, and philosophical aspects of the work.
Niccolò Machiavelli Published in 1532 five years after Machiavelli’s death, the philosophies and implications introduced in the manifesto are continually referenced by today’s top business executives for insight into leadership, political theory, and ethics.
Niccolò Machiavelli & George Bull (translator) This political-science classic still has the power to shock, just as it did when first published almost 500 years ago. Fritz Weaver reads in an appropriately detached manner, for it is this air of objectivity regarding the ruthless pursuit of political power that has made Machiavelli's name synonymous with evil. This quality recording begins and ends with ceremonial music, which sets the right tone for a treatise directed to royalty.
Niccolò Machiavelli Claimed to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, this unabridged version of The Prince is read by Emma Topping. This classic of political writing is Machiavelli's most notorious work. A treatise on gaining and maintaining political power, this is the work that inspired the use of the term "Machiavellian".
Niccolò Machiavelli When Lorenzo de' Medici seized control of the Florentine Republic in 1512, he summarily fired the Secretary to the Second Chancery of the Signoria and set in motion a fundamental change in the way we think about politics. The man who held the aforementioned office was none other than Niccolo Machiavelli, who, suddenly finding himself out of a job after 14 years of patriotic service, set a precedent for many a politician to come: He became a commentator and pundit. Unable to become an on-air political analyst for a television network or a syndicated news columnist, he wrote a book. But what a book The Prince is! Its essential contribution to modern political thought lies in Machiavelli's assertion of the then revolutionary idea that theological and moral imperative have no place in the political arena. "It must be understood", Machiavelli asserts, "that a prince...cannot observe all of those virtues for which men are reputed good, because it is often necessary to act against mercy, against faith, against humanity, against frankness, against religions, in order to preserve the state."
With just a little imagination, readers can discern parallels between a 16th-century principality and a 21st-century presidency.
Niccolò Machiavelli Here is the world's most famous master plan for seizing and holding power. Astonishing in its candor, The Prince is a disturbingly realistic and prophetic work on what it takes to be a prince, a king, a president. When, in 1512, Machiavelli was removed from his post in his beloved Florence, he resolved to set down a treatise on leadership that was practical, not idealistic. The prince he envisioned would be unencumbered by ordinary ethical and moral values. Through the years, The Prince has been misunderstood to the extent that Machiavelli's name has become synonymous with unscrupulous political behavior. However, it remains essential reading as the ultimate book on power politics. Included are selections from Machiavelli's Discourses upon the First Ten Books of Titus Livy.
Niccolò Machiavelli The Prince is a treatise that systematically charts the best strategies for successful governing. It unapologetically places realism above idealism, showing would-be kings how to get what they want while appearing to be generous and honourable, and advocates that the means — cruelty, duplicity and horror —justify the ends of secure monarchical rule. But it can also be read as the work of a secret republican subtly undermining the despotism of the ruling Medici family.
Ètienne de La Boétie & Niccolò Machiavelli Machiavelli wrote
The Prince for his ruler as a guide for gaining and keeping power. Central themes of his essay are the relation between politics and ethics, what the best form of government is, the importance of the Church, and the growth of Italy as a nation-state. The word "Machiavellian" often suggests sinister motives, but some scholars question this traditional interpretation.
De la Boetie wrote Discourse on Voluntary Servitude in 16th century France during the birth of the nation-state, the rise of absolute monarchy, and intense religious and civil wars. He examines the psychology of political obedience, the structure and specific mechanisms of state authority, the motives of those who obey and those who command, and the phenomenon of obedience in the absence of force.

Niccolò Machiavelli The Prince was the first great work of modern political and historical analysis, but it suffered from a tragic flaw: Machiavelli chose as his "hero" Cesare Borgia, the son of Pope Alexander VI, who, unknown to the author, employed murder as one of his tools of statecraft. While Machiavelli had patriotic intentions and praised Borgia for defending his homeland from political, diplomatic, and military attacks, Borgia was unmasked and the Vatican eventually banned the book. The Prince was later studied by Hitler, Stalin, Richelieu, Bismarck, and Frederick the Great.
Niccolò Machiavelli Belfador is the single novella remaining of Machiavelli's works. It was considered one of the finest of the period. Machiavelli was considered a skilled storyteller by all who knew him for, after all, stories form the basis of his most famous work, The Prince, and others: The Art of War and Discourses. His comic play The Mandrake Root was a spectacular success. Listen to and read all of these works to understand Machiavelli best.
"Belfagor" is a compact version of lessons from The Prince. In it, Pluto wants to figure out if sinners coming to him are correct in saying it was all their wives' fault. Belfagor is selected to go into the world and find out. Belfagor marries a beautiful woman who bankrupts him through extravagance and demands to fund her family. Belfagor must escape his creditors. A peasant with great cunning saves him and himself, and they avoid prison and hanging.
Professor Donald Fleming, a noted Harvard cultural historian said, "I encourage my students to read and write about five works of an author. It rounds out their thinking and avoids pigeonholing them. Once they have read Mark Twain's "Puddenhead Wilson" or Fitzgerald's Tender is the Night or Willa Cather's Alexander's Bridge, they know far more about the author. But after the third, fourth, and fifth books, they really know." So Simply has recorded five by Machiavelli: the witty Belfagor, the comic Mandrake Root, the shrewd Discourses, the wise Art of War, and his masterpiece, The Prince.
Niccolò Machiavelli Il Principe, grazie alla lungimiranza del suo autore, è il trattato politico per eccellenza: un libro che anticipa il cambiamento invece di rincorrerlo, e che, intercettando gli umori della popolazione, presagisce la naturale conclusione di tutte le lotte che animano il Quattrocento italiano: l’unità d’Italia. Scritto nel 1513, a cinquecento anni di distanza si conferma un testo fondamentale per quanti intendano approfondire non solo la scienza politica, ma riscoprire i grandi classici della letteratura italiana e i frutti imperituri dei maggiori geni rinascimentali, per capire quanto quell’epoca abbia segnato la società nella quale viviamo ancora oggi. Attualizzato grazie alla magistrale trasposizione dall’italiano antico di Paola Giovetti, raffinata esperta linguistica di numerosi classici del pensiero spirituale e non, il capolavoro per eccellenza della dottrina politica italiana viene qui proposto nella vivida interpretazione di Enzo Decaro, così da consentire la piena scoperta dei livelli contenutistici e testuali che rendono, ancora oggi, Il Principe una delle pietre miliari della nostra letteratura.

Niccolò Machiavelli This production of the famous 16th-century political treatise by diplomat and political theorist Niccolo Machiavelli will appeal to those interested in his political philosophy and not in the many historical and regional allusions that the original work contains. The latter have been excised in this abridgement.
Niccolò Machiavelli Composto nel 1513, il Principe è l'opera più conosciuta di Niccolò Machiavelli. E' un trattato di dottrina politica di sconcertante modernità, tanto che le qualità principali che secondo il pensiero di Machiavelli un principe dovrebbe avere sono tuttora citate negli odierni testi sul tema della leadership.
L'audiolibro è basato sul testo che riproduce la lezione del manoscritto G 14 custodito dalla Biblioteca Augusta del Comune di Perugia. Il manoscritto, datato XVI secolo, proveniente dalla Biblioteca di Monteripido, fu copiato da cinque (o sei) diversi amanuensi ed esibisce diversi ispanismi, alcuni vocalismi umbri e una notevole alternanza morfologica.

Niccolò Machiavelli In an attempt to appeal to the Medici family during the Italian Renaissance, Machiavelli outlines the way to acquire and retain political power, and how great men should behave in a princely government. The book is divided into four parts - types of principalities and state, proper conduct of a prince as military leader, personal conduct of a prince, and the disparity of Italy's political situation. Many listeners will be able to see principals that Machiavelli advocates for are still used in many political systems today.
Niccolò Machiavelli Es gibt nicht viele Werke, bei denen Werk und Wirkung so auseinandergetreten sind wie bei Niccolò Machiavellis schmalem Buch "Der Fürst". Auf der einen Seite sind heutzutage mit dem Begriff "Machiavellismus" politische Skrupellosigkeit und Gewissenlosigkeit verbunden. Auf der anderen Seite formuliert das Buch erstmals ein modernes Staatsverständnis im Sinne eines Gewaltmonopols innerhalb territorialer Grenzen. Um diesen Widerspruch richtig einordnen zu können, muss man sich vor Augen führen, dass "Der Fürst" vor beinahe fünfhundert Jahren in der Zeit der italienischen Renaissance entstand. War noch im Mittelalter das politische Handeln nach vermeintlich "ewigen" Werten und Normen beurteilt worden, so vollzog sich in der Renaissance eine Entdeckung der Eigengesetzlichkeit des Politischen aus der kühlen Beobachtung von Fakten. Bis heute brisant geblieben ist die schonungslose Konsequenz, mit der Machiavelli politisches Handeln zweckrationalen Prinzipien unterwarf. Seine Empfehlungen, Betrug, Hinterlist und Wortbruch als Handlungsoptionen zu erwägen, irritieren noch heute die Leser des "Fürsten" ebenso wie seine Ästhetik der Grausamkeit. Das Buch fokussiert auf die 10 bedeutenden Kapitel, in denen Machiavelli seine wesentlichen Thesen präzise darlegt. Der Hörer wird vom ersten Moment an gefesselt und taucht ein in Machiavellis Welt durch seinen einleitenden Brief an Lorenzo di Medici; unser Hörbuch gibt dem Hörer weitergehenden Kontext im Rahmen einer Einführung von Dr. Jörg Lehmann.
Niccolò Machiavelli Direct and coldly pragmatic, Niccolò Machiavelli's The Prince is the preeminent guide to winning and maintaining power at the highest levels, where deception and manipulation are necessary tools, and political allies should never be mistaken for friends.
Once a foreign policy official in his native Florence, Machiavelli was ousted by the Medici family. After surviving disgrace and torture at their hands, he penned The Prince to garner their favor. While this effort was ignored, the five-hundred-year-old work endures and is now considered one of the most influential - and controversial - political treatises of all time.
Revised edition: Previously published as The Prince, this edition of The Prince (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
Niccolò Machiavelli Entschlossenheit, Großmut, Klugheit und Gerechtigkeit - das sind die Eigenschaften, deren Zusammenklang sich Machiavelli für seine Herrschergestalt wünscht. Hinzu kam seine Beurteilung aus Geschichte und eigener Erfahrung, dass die Interessen des Staates und seine Sicherheit in der Politik den Vorrang vor allen ethnischen Erwägungen haben müssen.
Machiavellis Traktat "Il Principe" ist unter den Titeln "Der Fürst", "Le Prince" und "The Prince" Weltliteratur und über Jahrhunderte politische Richtschnur geworden.
Niccolò Machiavelli The Prince is a 16th-century political treatise by the Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. From correspondence, a version appears to have been distributed in 1513, using a Latin title, De Principatibus (About Principalities). However, the printed version was not published until 1532, five years after Machiavelli's death. This was done with the permission of the Medici Pope Clement VII, but long before then, in fact since the first appearance of The Prince in manuscript, controversy had swirled about his writings".
Although it was written as if it were a traditional work in the mirrors for princes style, it is generally agreed that it was especially innovative. This is only partly because it was written in the vernacular Italian rather than Latin, a practice which had become increasingly popular since the publication of Dante's Divine Comedy and other works of Renaissance literature.
The Prince is sometimes claimed to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, especially modern political philosophy, in which the effective truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal. It was also in direct conflict with the dominant Catholic and scholastic doctrines of the time concerning politics and ethics.
Although it is relatively short, the treatise is the most remembered of Machiavelli's works and the one most responsible for bringing the word "Machiavellian" into usage as a pejorative. It even contributed to the modern negative connotations of the words "politics" and "politician" in western countries. In terms of subject matter, it overlaps with the much longer Discourses on Livy, which was written a few years later. In its use of near-contemporary Italians as examples of people who perpetrated criminal deeds for politics, another lesser-known work by Machiavelli which The Prince has been compared to is The Life of Castruccio Castracani.

Niccolò Machiavelli "The Prince" (written in the beginning of the 1500s) is a political treatise, sometimes claimed to be one of the first works of modern political philosophy, in which the effective truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal. It was also in direct conflict with the dominant Catholic and scholastic doctrines of the time concerning how to consider politics and ethics.
Machiavelli dedicated "The Prince" to the ruling Medici of the time, leading some today to still speculate whether the book was a satire.
Machiavelli asserted that The Prince (president, dictator, prime minister, etc.) does not have to be concerned with ethics, as long as their motivation is to protect the state. It is this questionable belief that in many ways had led to the modern world as we know it. His assertion was that the head of state must protect the state no matter the cost and no matter what rules he or she breaks in the process.

Niccolò Machiavelli Wie kann ein Fürst politische Macht erwerben und erhalten? Zahllosen Fürsten und Herrschern diente es als Handbuch für Politik. Oft als Verteidigung des Despotismus und der Tyrannei solcher Herrscher wie Cesare Borgia verstanden - ein Herrscher ist nicht an die überlieferten ethischen Normen gebunden. Nur der Erfolg zählt. Zeitlos modern für alle Gebiete der Wirtschaft und der Politik. Das berühmteste Werk Machiavellis.
"...umso überraschter war ich, wie brandaktuell dieses Buch ist. Obwohl vor fast 500 Jahren geschrieben, ist es immer noch höchst relevant für alle, die in verantwortungsvollen Positionen sitzen. Machiavellis Ratschläge zur Regierung eines Landes oder zur Übernahme einer (Staats-)Macht kann meiner Meinung nach direkt auf das Top-Management übertragen werden. Seine Argumente sind plausibel und fundiert, er analysiert jedes Problem, das auftauchen könnte, und denkt es zu Ende. Ich war zuerst skeptisch, weil Machiavelli oft in Zusammenhang mit brutaler Machtpolitik genannt wird. Das ist auch nicht ganz aus der Luft gegriffen, schließlich war Cesare Borgia das Vorbild für den "Fürsten". Natürlich wird heutzutage eleganter mit den Konkurrenten umgegangen als zu Machiavellis Zeiten, aber die Grundideen dürften, denke ich, immer noch gültig sein: Durch dieses Buch bekommt man einen Einblick in die Gedankenwelt der Mächtigen..." - Josef Schumpeter
Niccolò Machiavelli As a young Florentine envoy to the courts of France and the Italian principalities, Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527) was able to observe firsthand the lives of people strongly united under one powerful ruler. His fascination with that political rarity and his intense desire to see the Medici family assume a similar role in Italy provided the foundation for his "primer for princes." In this classic guide to acquiring and maintaining political power, Machiavelli used a rational approach to advise prospective rulers, developing logical arguments and alternatives for a number of potential problems, among them governing hereditary monarchies, dealing with colonies and the treatment of conquered peoples.

Refreshing in its directness, yet often disturbing in its cold practicality, The Prince sets down a frighteningly pragmatic formula for political fortune. Starkly relevant to the political upheavals of the 20th century, this calculating prescription for power remains today, nearly 500 years after it was written, a timely and startling lesson in the practice of autocratic rule that continues to be much read and studied by students, scholars and general readers as well.
Niccolò Machiavelli & W. K. Marriott - translator This treatise on politics was the fruit of Machiavelli's many years of experience as a diplomat and historian and circulated in 1513 but not published until 1532. It was dedicated to Lorenzo de Medici, a member of the ruling dynasty of Florence.
In Machiavelli's view the ideal ruler is an effective executive rather than a moral paragon. If one desires power, one must take all the appropriate steps to acquire and maintain it. As models of successful princes, Machiavelli offers the examples of Pope Alexander VI; his son, Cesare Borgia; and Ferdinand of Aragon - men who were able, energetic, persuasive and intimidating and always prepared to act unethically if it suited their purposes.
The essential immorality of Machiavelli's central premise - that in politics the end justifies the means - led to the book being banned by Pope Paul IV in 1559.The translator has appended two other works by Machiavelli that describe the modus operandi of an effective ruler: a description of the methods adopted by Cesare Borgia at Sinigaglia in 1502 in removing his enemies and a biography of Castruccio Castracani (1284-1328), the ruler of Lucca.
Niccolò Machiavelli This is a performance of the very first English translation of Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince. This translation, published by Edward Dacres, first appeared in 1640. Machiavelli's original Italian edition was printed in 1532, five years after his death. Due to the evil associated with Machiavelli's book, it took 108 years for The Prince to be published in the English language.
As you might have guessed, the 1640 translation's language is poetic, and this Audible edition strives to maintain its original 17th-century beauty.

Niccolò Machiavelli Many of the world's leaders have turned to Niccolo Machiavelli's The Art of War as a guide to the fundamentals of war, including Frederick the Great, Napoleon, as well as countless other military leaders. Limited warfare is one of the philosophies promoted in this work. Machiavelli believed that military conflict should be a last resort and should only be considered when diplomacy fails. He was also of the belief that society could only remain stable and secure with a strong state military.
During the Renaissance era, Niccolo Machiavelli was an Italian diplomat, philosopher, historian, and politician. During his career, Machiavelli spent many years as a senior official in the Florentine Republic, working in diplomatic and in military affairs, but it was The Art of War that gained him the most recognition. During his lifetime, Niccolo Machiavelli was highly critical of corruption in politics, which is evident in much of his work.
