I read this book many years ago and like it so much that I now include it in the "reference library" I am making in my Kindle. Too bad Machiavelli's reputation is so much established by The Prince. The History of Florence and The Discourses on Livy clearly show Machiavelli was not all that Machiavellian.

I am afraid I don't know how good the book is, it is a present for my daughter in law, who is working on a PHD. But the shopping experience was good and I would buy from this seller again.
