    There's a reason the book is subtitled, "The Life and Times of Machiavelli." The author does a great job of explaining the political and social environment during Machiavelli's career and connecting his writings to his career needs when he wrote them. In this light, some of the more controversial sections of "The Prince" make sense/5. The Prince (Italian: Il Principe [il ˈprintʃipe], Latin: De Principatibus) is a 16th-century political treatise by the Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccolò his correspondence, a version appears to have been distributed in , using a Latin title, De Principatibus (Of Principalities). However, the printed version was not published until , five years after Author: Niccolò Machiavelli.

      From BBC Radio 4 - Book of the week: A new interpretation on the importance of The Prince in Machiavelli's life and subsequent reputation. His name has of course become a by-word for political machination, but this new biography by Erica Benner challenges the notions that Machiavelli was simply a satanic cynic/5(57). Machiavelli was destined for a life of civil service, but became a victim of the times he lived in. This power-player bet against the Medici and paid for it for the rest of his life.

      In , shortly after he appeared in several episodes of “The Sopranos,” he recorded his first book: Machiavelli’s “The Prince,” a project he accepted as a favor for a friend who was. The book is dedicated to the current ruler of Florence, and it is readily apparent that Machiavelli intends for his advice to be taken seriously by the powerful men of his time. It is a practical guide for a ruler rather than an abstract treatise of philosophy.
