As the most famous analysis of statesmanship and power, this world-renowned study reveals the techniques and strategy of gaining and keeping political control. The book’s essential contribution... More > to modern political thought lies in Machiavelli's assertion of the then revolutionary idea that theological and moral imperatives have no place in the political arena.
