'A ripping read ... fascinating, charming, enjoyably unorthodox'
Daily Telegraph Was Niccolo Machiavelli really the cynical schemer
of legend - or was he a profound ethical thinker, who tried to save
the democratic freedom of Renaissance Florence as it was threatened
by ruthless dynasties? This revelatory biography shows us a man of
fox-like dissimulation: a master of disguise in dangerous times. 'A
gripping portrait of a brilliant political thinker, who understood
the dangers of authoritarianism and looked for ways to curb them'
The New Yorker 'Compelling ... this unconventional biography
questions whether the philosopher deserves his reputation as an
advocate for tyranny' Julian Baggini, Financial Times
