Machiavelli has been among the most commented upon, criticised and feared thinkers of the modern world. Infamous for his support of brutality and repression as valid political instruments, he is often portrayed as the pantomime villain of political theorists.
In this whirlwind tour of Machiavelli’s writings and eventful life, Nederman highlights the complexities in his thought, showing that he actually advocated democracy as much as dictatorship, debate as much as violence – depending upon prevailing political conditions.

"If I were to teach high school humanities again, I would replace our textbook readings with Clester s adaptation of The Prince in a heartbeat not as a parallel text for reluctant or struggling readers, but as the core text for students at all reading levels to get a first exposure to Machiavelli s ideas." (August 5, 2011) Dr. Sean Kottke; Dean, Binda School of Education, The Robert B. Miller College
"With thoughtful illustrations and intuitive insight, Clester does indeed and brilliantly so translate Machiavelli's advice for modern readers. A clear master of the comic book format, Clester's graphic novel breathes new life into a once seemingly out of date or somewhat dry text. Complete with verbal and visual lessons that explain the nuances between what a young leader should or should not do, or, better yet, appear to do or not do, this graphic novel earns an A+."-Katie Monnin, PhD, assistant professor of literacy, University of North Florida, Diamond Bookshelf, 9/12/11
