At the end of an industrious political career in conflictriven Italy, the Florentine diplomat Niccol Machiavelli composed his masterpiece The Prince, a classic study of power and politics, and a manual of ruthlessness for any ambitious ruler.

It contains principles as true today as when they were first written almost five centuries ago.
