A political treatise written by Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli as an instructory guide for new princes and royals. The general theme of The Prince is of accepting that the aims of princes – such as glory and survival – can justify the use of immoral means to achieve those ends. Each part of The Prince has been extensively commented on over centuries. The Prince is often claimed to be one of the first works of modern political philosophy.
First published in 1532, this edition is derived from the book translated by W. K. Marriot with 43 footnotes and published in 1908.
