Here is the world's most famous master plan for seizing and holding power. Astonishing in its candor The Prince even today remains a disturbingly realistic and prophetic work on what it takes to be a prince . . . a king . . . a president. When, in 1512, Machiavelli was removed from his post in his beloved Florence, he resolved to set down a treatise on leadership that was practical, not idealistic. In The Prince he envisioned would be unencumbered by ordinary ethical and moral values; his prince would be man and beast, fox and lion. Today, this small sixteenth-­century masterpiece has become essential reading for every student of government, and is the ultimate book on power politics.

The Art of War (Dell'arte della guerra), is one of the lesser-­read works of Florentine statesman and political philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli.
The format of 'The Art of War' was in socratic dialogue. The purpose, declared by Fabrizio (Machiavelli's persona) at the outset, "To honor and reward virtu, not to have contempt for poverty, to esteem the modes and orders of military discipline, to constrain citizens to love one another, to live without factions, to esteem less the private than the public good.­" To these ends, Machiavelli notes in his preface, the military is like the roof of a palazzo protecting the contents.
Written between 1519 and 1520 and published the following year, it was the only historical or political work printed during Machiavelli's lifetime, though he was appointed official historian of Florence in 1520 and entrusted with minor civil duties.

• Für die eBook-­Version neu lektorierte Ausgabe
• In der Übersetzung von August Wilhelm Rehberg
• Behutsam modernisierte Rechtschreibung für bessere Lesbarkeit, ohne den Charakter des Textes zu verfälschen
• Mit aktuellem Vorwort: »Die Bedeutung von Niccoló Machiavellis ›Fürst‹ für die Politik« (Nov/2011)

Aus Tradition trägt dieses Buch den falschen deutschen Titel »Der Fürst«. »Il Principe«, so der Originaltitel, spricht nämlich nicht explizit über den Monarchen, der qua Adelsstand und Titel an der Spitze des Staates steht – nein, es bezieht sich auf den Herrscher und Anführer ganz allgemein, egal welche Staatsform er vertritt, egal welcher politischer Couleur er angehört. Gerade dies, diese allgemein gültige Führungstheorie, die Machiavelli sachlich und analytisch aufstellte, machte das Buch zu einem Weltbestseller – und zu einer begehrten Lektüre für Menschen in Führungspositionen, in der Politik, aber auch in anderen Bereichen, in denen Macht die zentrale Rolle spielt: . . .

The Prince ( Il Principe, is a political treatise by the Italian diplomat, historian and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. From correspondence a version appears to have been distributed in 1513, using a Latin title, De Principatibus (About Principalities). However, the printed version was not published until 1532, five years after Machiavelli's death. This was done with the permission of the Medici pope Clement VII, but "long before then, in fact since the first appearance of the Prince in manuscript, controversy had swirled about his writings".

Although it was written as if it were a traditional work in the mirrors for princes style, it is generally agreed that it was especially innovative. This is only partly because it was written in the vernacular (Italian) rather than Latin, a practice which had become increasingly popular since the publication of Dante's Divine Comedy and other works of Renaissance literature.
