may 14, 1513 - The Prince

Description:

The Prince, political treatise by Niccolò Machiavelli, published in 1513 as Il principe. A short treatise on how to acquire power, create a state, and keep it, the work was an effort to provide a guide for political action based on the lessons of history and his own experience as a foreign secretary in Florence. His belief that politics had its own rules so shocked his readers that the adjectival form of his surname, Machiavellian, came to be used as a synonym for political maneuvers marked by cunning, duplicity, or bad faith.
