Quick Overview

"This is an excellent, readable and vigorous translation of The Prince, but it is much more than simply a translation. The map, notes and guide to further reading are crisp, to-the-point and yet nicely comprehensive. The inclusion of the letter to Vettori is most welcome. But, above all, the Introduction is so gripping and lively that it has convinced me to include The Prince in my syllabus for History of Western Civilization the next time that I teach it. . . . Great price, too! And lovely printing and layout."

"The translation is lively and readable and makes the pithy, bracing, and forceful aspects of Machiavelli's thought accessible to nonspecialists."
     —Michael C. Downs, Indiana University

"The best edition of The Prince that I have ever read. Wootton's translation is lively and easy to read, and his introduction is provocative and engaging."
     —Angelo Louisa, University of Nebraska, Omaha

"A readable text in vigorous prose. I have not read a translation of The Prince into English that is more lively."
     —J. H. Hexter, Washington University

"This is the best edition of The Prince I have seen. I especially like the notes at the bottom of the pages. I will definitely use this version in the future. A great edition."
     —Kenneth Atkinson, University of Northern Iowa

"I had chosen another edition of The Prince for use in 8 lecture sections (taught by T.A.s) of Political Science. Two of the T.A.s used their own text (your edition) with their students using the other edition (as I had ordered for them). However, in our weekly seminar on "Teaching Political Science" it became obvious that your edition was best for our Intro students, so I now order it each time."
