‘We have declared before that it is not only expedient but necessary for a prince to take care his foundations be good, otherwise his fabric will be sure to fail.’
Considered one of the first works of modern philosophy, Machiavelli’s The Prince is an intense study on the nature of power.
Responsible for the widely-used phrase ‘Machiavellian’, with all of its negative connotations, his extreme treatise remains a classic text to this day.
