Description-
  • The revelations and confessions of one of the world's most infamous whistleblowers.

    Machiavellian'is a word used relatively often in the English language, to mean someone that is elaborately cunning, scheming or wholly unscrupulous. Funny that an Italian living in the 15th and 16th centuries should lend his name to a word with such meanings. Nicolo Machiavelli was a civil servant who wrote down all of his secrets and resentment when his employment in the Republic came to an end in 1512. Full of prophetic qualities, political observation and psychological insight, The Prince, read for CSA WORD very fittingly by Ian Richardson, has never lost its incredible power to shock and influence.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine This is the book that made the author's name into a dark symbol of unalloyed power and sinister political motives. That reputation, though, is somewhat undeserved, and this new recording brings fresh insights and interpretations to the work. Narrator Ian Richardson does a magnificent job with this classic text. He reads with such focus and mellifluous beauty that we must remind ourselves that the book is over 500 years old, and not a contemporary political tract. Richardson's diction and pacing are legendary from his long career on stage and in films, and he applies these talents effortlessly, emphasizing key phrases, speaking conversationally, and making it appear as if he's reading to only one person at a time. If you've never read THE PRINCE, here is a wonderful opportunity to do so. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
