Full Description

For forty years, Harvey Mansfield has been worth reading. Whether plumbing the depths of Machiavelli's Discourses or explaining what was at stake in Bill Clinton's impeachment, Mansfield 's work in political philosophy and political science has set the standard. In Educating the Prince, twenty-one of his students, themselves distinguished scholars, try to live up to that standard. Their essays offer penetrating analyses of Machiavellianism, liberalism, and America., all of them informed by Mansfield's own work. The volume also includes a bibliography of Mansfield's writings.
