The Machiavellian Enterprise
A Commentary on The Prince
Leo Paul de Alvarez
“A thorough analysis. De Alvarez provides extraordinary guidance in explaining the intricate unity of the work.”—Perspectives on Political Science
"A magnificent study of Machiavelli's The Prince."—Vickie Sullivan, author of Machiavelli's Three Romes
De Alvarez discovers a neglected argument in Machiavelli's masterpiece that encompasses much more than the education of a prince for the salvation of Italy. Building on a wealth of insight, he shows how Machiavelli, the "first political philosopher to turn to the many instead of the few as the basis of rule," sought to replace the domination of the Christian Rome with a civil, secular, and egalitarian state.
