Professor Skinner presents a lucid analysis of Machiavelli's text as a response both to the world of Florentine politics, and as an attack on the advice-books for princes published by a number of his contemporaries. This edition includes notes on the principal events in Machiavelli's life, and on the vocabulary of The Prince, as well as biographical notes on characters in the text.

Skinner reminds us of how innovative Machiavelli's thinking was; how he disdained the stifling morality of the Renaissance and took an intellectual leap which stretches from Cicero and Seneca to the thinkers of today. The notes are just superb.
Such a pity my copy has mis-spelt Machiavelli on the front cover!
The condition of the book was also as good as advertised.
