Classic, Renaissance-era guide, written in the age of the Medici's and aiming to enable rule through rational calculation. A clever guide to acquiring and maintaining political power, this prescription for autocratic rule continues to be much read and studied today. Tightly argued descriptions of governing hereditary monarchies, dealing with colonies and acquired territories and  maintaining rule under monarchical structures, "Machiavellian" has entered the language as a byword for gaining and keeping power through analyis of the qualites and practices that should be used by rulers who wish to maintain their role. 
Featuring discussions of such issues as reputation, cruelty, clemency, the use of fortresses, flattery, how to measure the strength of the Princedom and many other areas of monarchy and statecraft.
