5.0 von 5 Sternen Ingenious
Machiavelli decribes the one thing about politics that Plato and the others don't, and that is the reality of it. He does not talk about the Ideal State, rather, the States as it is -- the real and almost always brutal State. His work does not hold anything back. He tells it like it is -- like a realist. His use of history and historical characters is grand. This is a...

5.0 von 5 Sternen A chilling look into the mind of men, 14. Mai 1999

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Prince (World's Classics) (Taschenbuch)
Considered the first Modern, Machiavelli attempts to "decloud" Plato's Republic with practicality. A prolific work which shows the sinister workings of your fellow men. This is a definate reading for any remotely interested in philosophy or interested in a guide on how not to be virtuous.

5.0 von 5 Sternen just... great, 11. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Prince (World's Classics) (Taschenbuch)
Though people that have read this book thought it was pathetic and useless to them.. others quote it to be BORING. Those people probably just had to read it and write a report on it... or maybe some of them just breezed through it. After a hectic semester going through this book i have found it very interesting. How one man, Niccolo Machiavelli, got the attention of monarchs. These high class people looked down on writers unless they were extremely great like VIRGIL or PLATO. Other than that, this common man got the attention of all of the PRInces throughout the region. They followed his ways of being a great PRInce, they succeeded. Probably some people can't relate to this book these days because the times have changed. Our government is different. We have a democracy and if some of u remember in chapter 2 he says he will be talking about monarchies instead of Republics. (like we are) I think we can relate to this book if we can remember how times were doing Machiavelli's time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A highly enlightening contradiction to A Man for All Seasons, 19. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Prince (World's Classics) (Taschenbuch)
Although written centuries prior to Richard Bolt's masterpiece on the Anglican saint Sir Thomas More, it remains an incredible antithesis to the doctrine contained within. For a ruler to unify, control, and serve his populace, preached Machiavelli, he must forgo his morals and beliefs for the greater cause of nation, state, and religion. Whether this view is effective or destructive, it remains completely profound and has forever changed Western politics.
Many argue that Machiavelli wrote this brochure simply to please the ruling family of Florence, the principality in which he resided. Although correct to a certain extent, Machiavelli's genius for consistency in a political system remain's true throughout.
The vast majority of the ideas expressed within this piece are cruel and heartless. The reason for this is partially that a state contains no soul or conscience, according to Machiavelli, but must be devoted to the need for survival and independence alone.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Yes, that is the politics, 16. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Prince (World's Classics) (Taschenbuch)
Niccolo Machiavelli was obviously very bright and talented man. He was negotiator in foreign affairs for the Florentine republic and has seen (and of course used) many diplomatic features which are commonly used even today. To be taken back to favor with deMedici family, which house arrested him after he defended his town against their attack, he wrote a book in which he put his vast knowledge to them. This book is a perfect example of 15th and 16th century politics and is written as a workbook for a succesful ruler. Its principles remain unchanged and therefore it is basic reading for most political and economical high schools. After you finish it you realize that democracy most of the time uses rules of brutal Middle Ages, they are only packed more nicely than they used to be. If you need political or business success or if you need to lead people in any sort of way, you can't miss this little book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The basic lesson for all who want to rule the world!, 9. November 1999
Von 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Prince (World's Classics) (Taschenbuch)
This book is very useful for politicians and rulers; no wonder many conquerors such as Cromwell, Louis XIV,Napoleon I, and Adolf Hitler have spent many years perusing and practicing it.Unfortunately, the passage of time has dimmed the influence and power of this book.Let me take several historical examples: Louis XIV and Cromwell on the seventeenth century has very successfully practiced the methods in this book to gain power. Louis XIV could rule France absolutely until his death without any considerable rebellion.On the beginning of the nineteenth century Napoleon I also did the same thing as Louis XIV;on the onset of his empire he ruled successfully, but his power diminished drastically and he was forced to abdicate twice and exiled.This is because his enemies had known that he was merely copying the methods in this book. Adolf Hitler, on World War II also did the same thing and he was forced to bow down to his enemies only 5 years after the beginning of the war. If we practiced these methods now, I think that we won't win more than a single battle or two. Nowadays many people in the world have read this book, not except an 11-year Indonesian girl like me. To gain power and deceive the world now, we should use a new method. Nowadays the world is almost united and democracy is very popular. To conquer the world we must use a new method, and not merely relying on this book like our predecesors unless we are ready to meet failure very soon. This book is a good beginning,anyhow. Go and get it. I am sure that anyone interested in history(especially Italian history in the sixteenth century),politics and art of war & gaining power will enjoy perusing it very much. Who knows, you will be the first(wo)man to conquer and control the world?
