"All states, all powers, that have held and hold rule over men have been and are either republics or principalities. 

Principalities are either hereditary, in which the family has been long established; or they are new. 

The new are either entirely new, as was Milan to Francesco Sforza, or they are, as it were, members annexed to the hereditary state of the prince who has acquired them, as was the kingdom of Naples to that of the King of Spain. 

Such dominions thus acquired are either accustomed to live under a prince, or to live in freedom; and are acquired either by the arms of the prince himself, or of others, or else by fortune or by ability. ..."

  • More than a novel, excellent for students

    By Thomas Bradley
    It's one thing to read a novel, it's a whole different to read a well-organized book with extra reference material. I thought the table of contents was very useful, but the feature that really stood out was the analysis of the novel. The analysis is a Sparknotes type tool, which summarizes every chapter. It was especially useful for me when I had to review the material for an essay, as it was full of quotes and key points.
