Niccolò Machiavelli's 'The Prince' is widely regarded as one of the most influential books on politics, especially on the acquisition, perpetuation and use of political power. Despite being written in 1513, the theories expressed are still considered shrewd and insightful.

Even though his philosophy is often misunderstood, Machiavelli's works offer fascinating insights into Renaissance government.
