Machiavelli in Hell

Sebastian De Grazia

In this intellectual biography Sebastian de Grazia presents a new vision of Niccolo Machiavelli that evokes, with uncanny precision, the great Florentine thinker’s presence. After providing an engrossing account of Machiavelli’s childhood and the period following his imprisonment and torture, the book turns to an examination of The Prince. The details of Machiavelli’s life — his home, journeys, fears and joys, friends, loves, and works — never cease to weave in and out of the narrative, as we read how his ideas gather power and coalesce into a unified vision of humankind and the world.
