The Sweetness of Power
Machiavelli's Discourses and Guicciardini's Considerations
Niccolò Machiavelli and Francesco Guicciardini
Translated by James B. Atkinson and David Sices
"The best account of Machiavelli's main intention in writing the Discoursi, far surpassing all English editions."—Maurizio Viroli, Princeton University
The question of order inspired two of the greatest political thinkers of the Renaissance—Niccolò Machiavelli and Francesco Guicciardini, whose major works on the nature of government are linked in an authoritative new translation. Political adversaries but nonetheless friends, Machiavelli and Guicciardini both reflected on ancient Rome and refined their conceptions of government with an eye to the political turmoil of their own Florence.
James B. Atkinson and David Sices have translated many works, including Machiavelli and His Friends: Their Personal Correspondence.
