    ITEM#: 2614345

    Peter Constantine, winner of the PEN Translation Prize and a National Translation Award, has earned wide acclaim for his translation ofThe Undiscovered Chekhov and of the complete works of Isaac Babel, as well as for his Modern Library translations, which includeThe Essential Writings of Machiavelli, Gogol’s Taras Bulba, Voltaire’sCandide, and Tolstoy’s The Cossacks.

    Albert Russell Ascoli is Gladys Arata Terrill Distinguished Professor of Italian Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, and was awarded the Rome Prize for study at the American Academy in Rome.

    That Machiavelli’s name has become synonymous with cold-eyed political calculation only heightens the intrinsic fascination ofThe Prince–the world’s preeminent how-to manual on the art of getting and keeping power, and one of the literary landmarks of the Italian Renaissance. Written in a vigorous, straightforward style that reflects its author’s realism, this treatise on states, statecraft, and the ideal ruler is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand how human society actually works.
