And another:

“Catherine Zuckert is among the leading historians of Western political thought, her scholarship over the years covering an impressive range of topics and epochs, from Plato to American political philosophy, not to mention exposition of the ideas of the influential German-American philosopher Leo Strauss. And, of course, as this book attests, she has contributed significantly to the study of Niccolò Machiavelli, the famous (and, for some, notorious) sixteenth-century political author, the mention of whose very name often elicits a quite visceral reaction from a surprisingly broad audience. The volume under review represents the fruits of Zuckert’s considerable reflections on Machiavelli’s writings, containing both previously published and unpublished material.”
