Florence in Machiavelli's time was a fiercely competitive world, he and his contemporaries faced a choice: should they capitulate to new princes, or fight to save the city's democratic freedoms. Benner follows Machiavelli's dramatic quest for political and human freedom. He emerges as his era's staunchest champion of liberty, a profound ethical thinker who refused to compromise his ideals to fit corrupt times – who was also an artist of fox-like dissimulation and a master of disguise in dangerous times.
