KING, ROSS - Machiavelli

Title: Machiavelli
Description: Harper Press, London, 2007. Octavo; hardcover; 245pp. Binding rolled. Otherwise minor wear only; near fine in like dustwrapper. In an era when the gun was taking over as the weapon of choice on the battlefield, Niccolo Machiavelli lay down the ground rules regarding conflict and the art of governance. This biography by Ross King details the trials and ambitions of the young scholar, rising diplomat, historical analyst and - all too suddenly - court exile. Forced to abandon his chosen career and become, by default, a philosopher and political theorist, he emerges as, perhaps, the greatest of all time.
