Industry Reviews

"This translation ... of Machiavelli's thoughts on his native city is meant to be less colloquial and closer to the original than the typical translation. This highlights how Machiavelli used words (and thought) differently from us... Machiavelli is too often remembered merely as the realist who took the morality out of 'virtue.' As the Histories demonstrate, he was also a gifted writer and historian."--Virginia Quarterly Review "Banfield and Mansfield's new rendition of the Renaissance humanist's study of Florentine history aims to supply contemporary readers with a literal, exact, and readable version of the original... Machiavelli's concept of history and his purpose in charting the story of Florence and its leading families are thoroughly examined before the translators lead their readers into the substance of the social philosopher's arguments and into a work of literature that once again comes alive."--Booklist
