The Machiavellian Enterprise: A Commentary on The Prince

Scholars have long maintained that Machiavelli's The Prince does not develop a single sustained argument but rather presents a set of disparate reflections; however, de Alvarez takes a different view. In The Machiavellian Enterprise , he demonstrates that there is an internal consistency in The Prince built upon a key argument that has been previously overlooked. De Alvarez presents his bold and sophisticated argument in an accessible manner and incites debates and discussions that reshape the view of the western tradition's most original political philosopher.
