Revue de presse

...a great author requires a careful translator; and it is befitting for Conaway Bondanella and Bondanella, in presenting a text translated from Italian to English, to assert that Machiavelli has been misunderstood because of poor translations. (Sixteenth Century Journal)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Machiavelli's commentary on Livy's history of Rome sets out his fundamental preference for a republican state. This translation is richly annotated, providing the contemporary reader with sufficient historical, linguistic, and political information to understand and interpret the revolutionary affirmations Machiavelli made, based on the historical evidence he found in Livy. - ;IDiscourses on Livy (1531) is as essential to an understanding of Machiavelli as his famous treatise, The Prince. Equally controversial, it reveals his fundamental preference for a republican state.

Comparing the practice of the ancient Romans with that of his contemporaries provided Machiavelli with a consistent point of view in all his works. Machiavelli's close analysis of Livy's history of Rome led him to advance his most original and outspoken view of politics - the belief that a healthy body politic was characterized by social friction and conflict rather than by rigid stability. His discussion of conspiracies in Discourses on Livy is one of the most sophisticated
treatments of archetypal political upheaval every written. In an age of increasing political absolutism, Machiavelli's theories became a dangerous ideology.

This new translation is richly annotated, providing the contemporary reader with sufficient historical, linguistic, and political information to understand and interpret the revolutionary affirmations Machiavelli made, based on the historical evidence he found in Livy. -

Machiavelli goes into great historical detail and through great intellectal reasoning to present his arguments on how a Republic should be organized and run. It's rather easy to read, as Machiavelli has chaptered up this book into singular topics.

Aiding in reading, this version has historical notes in the back to explain references Machiavelli makes about contemporary events that he does not go into detail on.

This book has easily had more impact on my life and thinking than any other.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 good translation, interesting academic read 1 novembre 2012
Par Amelia Lloyd-Jones - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The Discourses on Livy was perhaps Machiavelli's best work although not as famous as The Prince. The book revealed his fundamental preference for a republican state. Machiavelli consistently compared the practice of the ancient Romans to contemporary Italy. His republican theories were dangerous ideas during his lifetime. Based on historical evidence gleaned from Livy, Machiavelli's work was divided into three separate books: (1) decisions regarding the city of Rome, (2) the expansion of the empire, and (3) the preservation and protection of the Roman state.

Machiavelli's comparisons of Rome to Florence were fascinating. The new translation of this book had hundreds of annotions which added historical and political information about Machiavelli's life time. Although the book was lengthy, Machiavelli divided his themes into smaller treatises of about two to three pages in length making it easier for the reader to analyze the content. Machiavelli was a witty writer who expressed his opinions in bold language.

Truthfully, I have not yet read it. I am still reading Livy as background to the Discourses. I f elt that one should read Livy first in order to get a sense of what Machiavelli was saying in the Discourses. Because Machiavelli is most famous for "The Prince," he has gain a "reputation" mostly for that book. The Discourses will show that Machiavelli is much more than "The Prince" and that he was an important, thoughtful analyst of politics.

This classical from Machiavelli cannot be missed as a reference material to a dissertation in leadership, human behavior, and the dark side of leadership. Thank you, for your prompt delivery.
