The Prince, by Niccolo Machiavelli, is one of the most read political treatises in the history of man. Written in 1513 and published in 1532, Machiavelli wrote the treatise during a time of great political conflict in Italy. Using his philosophical beliefs as a basis, he scribed an informative exposition that details methods an hopeful or existing prince can use to acquire or maintain his throne.

The Prince contains ten sections written to help states understand how to control their principalities and maintain power by means of force. The treatise also details methods to gain further power, also through force. The first section covers Defense and Military. Machiavelli teaches states how to defend themselves and the most efficient way to attack and gain power. The second section speaks about the Reputation of a Prince; Machiavelli writes that “a man who strives after goodness in all his acts is sure to come to ruin, since there are so many men who are not good.” Therefore, a prince should not worry about being perceived as good, but rather be concerned about what is best for his state.

The Prince has influenced many political leaders and philosophers, including Napoleon, Mussolini, and Stalin. The book is the root of the term “Machiavellian” which means “suggestive of or characterized by expediency, deceit, and cunning.” The Prince has been interpreted as a literal manual for leaders of principalities and also as political satire.
