Written in 1513, but only published in 1532, after Machiavelli’s death, The Prince makes the famous claim that the end justifies the means. Although written in the context of Italian Renaissance politics and advocating the ruthless exercise of political power, it has remained one of the most influential political treatises for over 500 years. The unabridged work is read here by Nigel Carrington. 3 CDs; duration 3hrs 12mins.
