Description:
In Machiavelli's view, virtue is that which increases power; vice is that which decreases it. Far shorter than most classic works, and more accessible to current readers because of their familiarity with politics, this work yields benefits and insights to all who read, digest, and critically examine the precepts it explains. A must-read classic of world literature.
