Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) is remembered as a calculating propagandist, power broker and political theorist, but this is only a partial portrait which ignores his dismal career as a politician. Capponi's biography uncovers the complex character of the man behind the legend: a lover of contradiction, provocation, gambling and joking who can only be properly understood against the background of the cynical and irreverent Renaissance city of Florence where he lived.
