This 17th Century English translation of Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince was found in a pile of common prayer books at a house in Swanton Morley. Nice find!

This is still required reading at leading schools today. Substitute The Prince with The State and you still have the best blue print for maintaining power ever written!

YT you are absolutely correct. Along with Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" it is still on the curriculum of the major military academies and political science degree courses. The admonitions on state sponsored terrorism to be blamed on opponents couldn't be more appropriate than it is today.
