Description
Summary:The thought and influence of Machiavelli has had a significant impact on a variety of academic disciplines, including political science and government, history, literature, language, theatre, and philosophy. Rather than inscribe Machiavelli within the boundaries of a single academic approach, tradition, or discourse, this volume assembles multidisciplinary perspectives on his writings on government, on his creative works, and on his legacy. The result is intended to appeal at once to generalists seeking baseline knowledge of Machiavelli and to specialists who are interested in critical views of Machiavelli that use a broad lens and that approach their subject from different angles. The contributors include: Susan Ashley, Salvatore Bizzarro, Julia Bondanella, JoAnn Cavallo, Salvatore Di Maria, Marie Gaille-Nikodimov, Eugene Garver, Joseph Khoury, William Klein, Sante Matteo, Gerry Milligan, RoseAnna Mueller, John Roe, Gerald Seaman, Charles Tarlton, Patricia Vilches, and Mary Walsh.
