Machiavelli and Renaissance Italy: : Hale, John Rigby: BooksReviews: 1. Journal of Northern Renaissance 'This book is an excellent scholarly analysis of the impact of Machiavelli's The Prince in England and Scotland in the sixteenth century [Petrina] throws light on Machiavelli's moral neutrality showing in the process how this was often misinterpreted as immorality.

      A “captivating biography of Italian philosopher and playwright”*—Niccolò Machiavelli, author of The Prince—whose writings have outraged and inspired generations of ò Machiavelli is the most influential political writer of all time. His name has become synonymous with cynical scheming and the selfish pursuit of power, but the real Machiavelli, says Miles Unger, was a 4/5(1). Niccolò Machiavelli was born on May 3, , in Florence, Italy, and passed his childhood peacefully, receiving the humanistic education customary for young men of the Renaissance middle class. He also spent two years studying business mathematics, then worked for the next seven years in Rome for a Florentine banker. The Prince is set against the backdrop of the Italian Renaissance, a period of intense activity in art, science, and literature. Rich, sophisticated, and cultured, Italy was the center of intellectual achievement in the Western world, and scholars and artists from all over Europe flocked to .

      A bold, revisionist account of the political thought of the Italian Renaissance—from Petrarch to Machiavelli—that reveals the all-important role of character in shaping society, both in citizens and in their leaders. Convulsed by a civilizational crisis, the great thinkers of the Renaissance set out to reconceive the nature of society.   Machiavelli was more than just a cynic. He grew up in a family reduced to penury, was raped by a schoolmaster, was promiscuously bisexual and also, as befits a Renaissance 4/5. You are looking at a 7 item book lot about the Italian Middle Ages & Renaissance. Includes literary masters Dante and Machiavelli, engineering and architecture, a book about the Dye markets and world trade at that time, and of course books on politics featuring the infamous Borgia Rating: % positive.
