Camila Vergara reviews Machiavelli: The Art of Teaching the People What to Fear, by Patrick Boucheron, translated by Willard Wood, at the Boston Review.
"historian Patrick Boucheron reminds us that there is always interest in Machiavelli in turbulent times [because he’s the man to philosophize in heavy weather. If we’re reading him today, it means we should be worried. He’s back: wake up.'"
See Machiavelli, The Prince, in Great Books of the Western World (first edition, 52 Vol., 1952) volume 23, (second edition, 60 Vol., 1990) volume 21.
