The Modern Prince

Patrick Garrity reviews Carnes Lord’s The Modern Prince: What Leaders Need to Know. Lord doesn’t exactly read Machiavelli the way most read him; he is most interested in getting people to appreciate what he calls the "grammar of leadership"--statecraft. Garrity, in brief, does justice to this point and its relationship to liberal democracy, properly understood. A good read. By the way, Lord will be speaking at the Ashbrook Center on February 17th next.
