Product Description
If you are ruling a country, is it better to be loved or feared? Does a leader need to follow the same moral guidelines as everyone else? What is the main thing a leader needs to study?

These and other provocative questions were posed by Niccolo Machiavelli in his political masterwork, The Prince (1513). This product has thought-provoking excerpts and questions that are perfect for a close read assignment. This product also includes a PowerPoint image and some useful background about Machiavelli and Renaissance Italy. This product is truly a must-have for any World History course, or any class that delves into the Renaissance in Italy.

An important aspect to convey to students is this: when Machiavelli talks about "loved" he means by that "popular" and when Machiavelli talks about "feared" he means by that "respected."
