Machiavelli and Republicanism


Machiavelli and Republicanism

This highly acclaimed volume brings together some of the world's foremost historians of ideas to consider Machiavelli's political thought in the larger context of the European republican tradition, and the image of Machiavelli held by other republicans. An international team of scholars from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds (notably law, philosophy, history and the history of political thought) explore both the immediate Florentine context in which Machiavelli wrote, and the republican legacy to which he contributed.


 Reviews:

"The collection as a whole provides a synopsis of what is still probably the most powerful tradition in European political thought; and this is the best collection of essays on that topic now available."
