520    Machiavelli (1469-1527) is the seminal figure in early 
       modern intellectual history for those living, or wishing 
       to live, in a functional democracy. What Machiavelli is 
       primarily about, and what makes him indispensable to those
       of us living in and struggling to preserve democracy in 
       America, is the sum of individual and collective qualities
       required of a citizen, or what he termed virtu: a host of 
       traits ranging from manliness to boldness, ingenuity, 
       excellence, self-esteem, and even stoic resignation. In a 
       narrative spanning Machiavelli's life and work as one of 
       the world's most fascinating philosophers, Bernard 
       illuminates for the modern reader just how relevant his 
       insights are to our own evolving debate on the appropriate
       relations between religion and politics, church and 
       state.Besides offering a detailed sketch of Machiavelli as
       a chancellor in the Italian Soderini Republic (1498-1512),
       this book examines the man's political philosophy, 
       particularly his complex view of republics and 
       principalities, in The Prince, the Discourses, and the 
       Florentine Histories. It also establishes the importance 
       of Machiavelli's writing as it evolved during his exile, 
       especially in the reflexive passages of his plays 
       Mandragola and Clizia. The book concludes with the 
       potential uses of Machiavellism in 21st-century mass 
       democracies, as well as presenting ways in which his 
       legacy lives on in our own activities as citizens in a 
       democracy
