The New Machiavelli: How to Wield Power in the Modern World
Taking the lessons of Machiavelli derived from his experience as an official in fifteenth-century Florence, Powell shows how these lessons can still apply today. Illustrating each of Machiavelli's maxims with a description of events that occurred during Tony Blair's time as Prime Minister, The New Machiavelli is designed to be The Prince for modern times.
"Intriguing and engaging book... sets up fascinating parallels that prove there is really nothing new in politics" (Financial Times)"A gloriously indiscreet political memoir... From a unique vantage point he gives brilliantly observed and witty accounts of the vanity of modern European princes... The merit of Powell's memoir is precisely that it lacks the intrusive ego of the big politician" (Dominic Lawson Sunday Times)"It's a quirky, thoughtful take on the impact of The Prince on modern politics" (Anne McElvoy New Statesman, Books of the Year)"Anyone who wants an insider's account of what makes politicians tick should read this book" (Peter Mandelson Guardian, Books of the Year)"It tells us a great deal about the era that has just passed" (Chris Mullin Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year)
