Description

The New Machiavelli The New Machiavelli is a gripping account of life inside 'the bunker' of Number 10. In his twenty-first century reworking of Niccolo Machiavelli's influential masterpiece, The Prince, Jonathan Powell - Tony Blair's Chief of Staff from 1994 - 2007 - recounts the inside story of that period, drawing on his own unpublished diaries.

Taking the lessons of Machiavelli derived from his experience as an official in fifteenth-century Florence, Powell shows how these lessons can still apply today. Illustrating each of Machiavelli's maxims with a description of events that occurred during Tony Blair's time as Prime Minister, The New Machiavelli is designed to be The Prince for modern times.

Reviews

  • An interesting take on the Blair years

    Unlike other members of the Blair court Jonathan Powell hasn't gone for a standard auto biography but has sought to tell his tales from the inner circle by relating them to Machiavelli's teachings. On the whole it works - though at times it is a little laboured. It's not as good as his previous book on Northern Ireland but has lots to interest anyone who follows modern British politics
